| Elizabeth Pruitt is primarily known as Elizabeth Robbins
|Biography from Tierney Fine Art:|
|Elizabeth was raised in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. As a child, her Grandmothers would help her identify various wild flowers at their cabin above Oakley, Utah. This is where her love of flowers began. “I still have the book where I pressed and categorized wild flowers that my paternal Grandmother helped me with.” She began painting in her early twenties but soon children became her priority and her love of painting was an occasional hobby. As the children grew, so did her desire to expand on her art. |
Her work is in private collections throughout the United States and in the Ella Dunnegan Museum in Bolivar, Missouri.
