Painter and illustrator, Liz Defrain earned her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

 

Defrain was born in Ontario, Canada and grew up in Bermuda. She has also lived in Miami, New York City, Jersey City, and, currently, Baltimore.

Her work has been published in magazines, corporate communications, and greeting cards - although her main interest is painting on large canvas. Defrain has also shown in many group shows and small galleries.

 

Her paintings are always in bold, static colors, using acrylics and a mixture of frisket and glue. She is greatly influenced by her island upbringing and her experiences of living in the hustle and energy of the urban environment.

 

Defrain is available for commissioned work or gallery shows via her email:
