Elizabeth Pogor, a Massachusetts native, began her career as an artist after graduating from Massachusetts College of Art in the 1980’s as a sculpture major. She studied briefly at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly. She became interested in working with oils much later, when she enrolled at an evening oil painting class. By the time she had completed that class she knew that painting in oils was what she loved. Her first pieces were more traditional, some figurative, some still life, then she moved onto more abstract work. Elizabeth is also the owner of Silver Tie Servers, providing servers, waitstaff, and event planning for all types of events.
“People say they see images in my abstract work… I do not. I never plan out my paintings nor do I anticipate my palette beforehand. Some pieces work, others do not. Many times my successes are painted over my failures… look deep into the layers of color and you may see what’s underneath”.
