Elizabeth McAfee has been drawing and painting all her life. Animals have always been a favorite subject of hers. Books and ideas have also been important influences on the artist, who received both her BA and MA in literature. Another major influence on her work was Sandy, the beautiful yellow tabby featured in so many of her paintings, who lived with the McAfees for 18 1/2 years until he passed on in July of 2003.
Elizabeth has lived in Asheville, NC, with her author/teacher husband, John P. McAfee, for over 25 years. She is represented in Asheville by Kress Emporium. In addition, her work can be seen at many southeastern art and craft shows where it has delighted thousands of collectors from all over the world.
