Collection: Elizabeth Lewis Scott

I’ve been drawing and painting since childhood. Horses were a major part of my upbringing, both in activities and artwork. Schooling included plein airing across Europe (long before plein air was cool!), and earned a B.A. degree in Studio Arts from Principia College, Elsah, IL. I worked almost entirely in equine subjects until, in the mid-1990s, I got bitten by both the wildlife and western art bugs. Life is Great! 

“The strength of any finished work of art lies in the drawing that preceded it” summarizes my philosophy and technique in all of the media I work in (oil, watercolor, graphite, and pen & ink). My trademark is Insistence on underlying detail, infused with Character that my subjects have shared with me over the decades.

Along life’s path, I’ve had the honor of exhibiting at or having affiliations with:

  • Coors Western Art Show and Sale (CO)
  • Cattlemen’s Western Art Show (CA)
  • Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) Old West Museum (WY)
  • The Museum of Western Art (TX)
  • Bosque Art Classic (TX)
  • International Museum of the Horse (KY)
  • Kentucky Derby Museum (KY)
  • Masters of Foxhounds Traveling Exhibition
  • Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) (SC)
  • Bennington Art Center (VT)
  • Booth Museum of Western Art (Cartersville, GA)
  • Beverly McNeil Gallery (Birmingham, AL)

  • RS Hanna Gallery (Fredericksburg, TX)
  • Mountain Spirit Gallery (Prescott, AZ)
  • American Women Artists, Signature Member
  • American Academy of Equine Art, Signature Member
  • Women Artists of the West

A few other fun things that have come my way include:

  • Official artist for the Charleston Cup steeplechase
  • AAEA - Kimbel E. Oelke Award for Excellence in Painting
  • AAEA - Else Tuckerman Award for Excellence in Classic Equine Portraiture (2019!)
  • Included in Drawing and Painting Horses, The Art of the Equine Form
  • Purchase awards into permanent collections of The Kentucky Derby Museum (equine) and Energen Corporation (wildlife)
  • Teaching classes at the Kentucky Horse Park and the Booth Museum of Western Art
I live with my family on an 80-acre farm, surrounded by horses, ponies, and other critters that inspire my artwork.
