Elizabeth Mumford paints in a whimsical style, often with a nautical theme. Each painting is surrounded by her signature black border with a verse and bronze stenciled scallop shells in the corner. Her work reflects her love of the sea, old boats, and “olden times”.

Liz has put many paintings into prints, note cards and most recently, needlepoint canvases and hand cut puzzles. She has designed programs and prints for many charities and schools.

Liz attended Sweet Briar College in Virginia, and graduated from Smith College. Liz then took a job teaching school on Maui, Hawaii. After 5 years there, she returned to Indiana to continue teaching in Evansville. In 1980, Liz entered a graduate program in art and education at Tulane University. After completing that program, she moved to the family house on Cape Cod. No teaching job was available, so she turned to painting full time. A sell-out first show and a lot of hard work enabled Liz to develop her style. In 2009, Liz returned to the classroom; she is teaching Art History at Cape Cod Community College, and a “community” art history series at local libraries and churches.

Her work is appreciated by collectors across the U.S. including exhibitions at Mystic Seaport Maritime Gallery, the Cotuit Center for the Art in Cotuit; Cahoon Museum, Cotuit, Ma.; Cover Artist, Hook Fisherman’s Association, Chatham, Ma.
