Elisa R. Boughner was born in the United States, raised in Mexico and studied art in America and Europe. Her work reflects the influence of each of these cultures, and of a range of painting styles from the Impressionists, through the German Expressionists, and finally the Cubist. The result is a unique and highly personal style that brings extraordinary vibrancy to often ordinary subjects. Boughner uses the bright colors characteristic of Mexican painting, but employs them in the viscerally communicative fashion. She has been an artist all of her life. She has studied the works of masters in their own world and taken what she has learned to create her own style and substance. Since graduating from graduate school she has raised four children and opened her own studio. She has taken part in numerous exhibits, from one woman shows to collaborative museum exhibits. Her paintings hang in several public and private collections throughout the world.
