​Elizabeth Monahan

Elizabeth is a figurative artist whose practice is primarily concerned with ideas of identity, emotion and narrative.  Most recently, she has produced a series of large-scale works based on her own family’s Brownie Box ‘snaps’. These intimate yet ambiguous images use drawing to explore the poignant link between photography, time and memory.  Elizabeth has also worked as an illustrator and an English teacher, and her love of literature, language and storytelling continue to inform and influence her current work.


Elizabeth teaches Observational & Abstract Drawing and Life Drawing.
