Biography   Eloise Pickard Smith

Eloise Pickard Smith was born in Durham, North Carolina on August 6, 1921.  After studying with Gregory Ivy at the Beaufort Summer Art Colony, Smith won a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York City.  She then worked in Colorado and Massachusetts until 1953 when she moved to California. 

Primarily a watercolorist, she also worked in casein and oil.  Few of her paintings are extant since a fire destroyed much of her work.  She died in Santa Cruz, CA on August 26, 1995.  A gallery at University of California at Santa Cruz is named in her honor.
