San Antonio artist Elizabeth McGrath is a maker of small and domestic objects. She is also an observer of human gestures and how notions like comfort and discomfort, and the organization of organic forms tend to manifest themselves. These ideas seem to float through her unconscious as she works.
McGrath graduated from Austin College and received her MFA at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She was selected by a 1994 regional panel of arts professionals convened Artpace to participate in the Foundation’s London Studio program in April 1995. She spent six weeks in England. “The trip broadened my perspective,” she says.
