Portuguese artist based in the United States
Elizabeth Casqueiro is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the significance of place through a vivid and playful palette inspired by the sunny geography of Portugal where she grew up. Geometry influences her artwork, as do scale and proportion. She gravitates to materials that stem from nature - clay, water, wood, linen, and cotton - and works in repeated layers of precision and lose gesture, reflecting the dichotomy between the fabricated and the organic.
Elizabeth has shown her work in solo shows across the United States and Europe, and she is a recipient of art awards from the DC Arts and Humanities as well as the Maryland State Arts Council. Her work has been exhibited at the London Art Biennale and various galleries in the Washington, DC area and New York City.
In addition to her training in design and architecture, Elizabeth pursued art studies at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art, the Corcoran College of Art and Design, and the Washington Studio School. Her artwork is in private and corporate collections including the World Bank Group.
