Local Artist: Elizabeth Chapin
by Taylor Browning
I came across local Austin artist, Elizabeth Chapin while reading this post on Apartment Therapy that featured a house tour of a home in Hyde Park–my neighborhood in Austin, Texas. I loved the way the home was decorated and especially loved the painting sitting above the fireplace. I read on to discover that the artist is a friend of the homeowner, Nancy Mims, who is the designer and creative director for Mod Green Pod, a hip and swanky wallpaper and textiles company. I tracked down Chapin’s website and fell in love with her painting style–bold use of color, texture, and pattern and a unique approach to portraiture. I was unable to post any images from her website, but I highly recommend you check them out for yourself by clicking here.
