This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter and art teacher, Elizabeth Myrick arrived in Morgan Park, Illinois when it was undeveloped territory, and her family became the first residents as her father formed a settlement corporation on land acquired from the railroad. In 1874, she, a graduate of Cook County Normal School, became the first teacher of the first Morgan Park school, a one-room structure. She stayed in that position for eight years, and then taught for several years in the replacement building.

As an artist, she studied in Chicago under John Vanderpoel, and her specialty became florals still life. In her obituary, it was stated that "She painted flowers lovingly because she loved them." The obituary also quoted a French art publication, the "Revue du Vrai et du Beau", which reproduced two of her floral groups and described them as being "of fine execution, great lightness of touch and exquisite delicacy of feeling. . . of rare elegance, . . .A sympathetic interpreter of flowers, she translates their personality with a talent both original and extremely captivating".

Her first studio was in the Auditorium and Field Buildings in Morgan Park and later in the bank building, and she also conducted art classes from these studios.

Her work is in the Vanderpoel Collection and the Walker Library of Morgan Park. She exhibited in the 1893 Chicago Exposition and local venues of the Clio Club and Arche Club.
