Artist Elizabeth Traub

Some people eat their emotions.

I paint mine.

Here is my story… I sat at the counter of my new interior design store in 1993. Every day waiting for customers.

“Rainbow Blush” by Elizabeth Traub

Slowly throughout the day people trickled in. I had lots of time in-between customers so I started painting things. I started painting away the nerves of being a new shop owner.

Looking at each display and painting abstract pieces to match my displays.

Then a step stool, then furniture. As my business grew and my client list grew I painted murals. The 90’s were big on murals. I painted pieces for the Portland Street of Dreams. I painted anything that would hold paint and add to the design of a room.

Over the years I have had many creative outlets. Raising 5 children and exposing them to arts and crafts has been one of my greatest joys. Teaching art classes an even greater joy. Especially handing a canvas, paints brushes and seeing the individual style and process and being open thoughts and ideas.

I was highly criticized while attending the Art Institute of Seattle. With structure and a specific criteria on what to paint I failed miserably. There I learned how to meet the client’s need.

Today, painting is my release, my rest, my restoring of 55 years. I am learning and growing as I make this my second half of life fulfilling of a dream and passion. Some people eat their emotions. I am painting mine.
