This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Elizabeth Warhanik was one of Seattle's most prominent early artists. She
excelled in oil, watercolor and printmaking.

Born in Philadelphia, Warhanik spent five years teaching in Japan before
moving to Seattle in 1907. In 1910 she married Charles Warhanik in Seattle
where she remained for the rest of her life.

Coming from an artistic family, her parents were both artists who met at the
Pennsylvania Academy of Art and her sister, Eleanor Campbell, was an
illustrator who became known for her illustrations for the popular "Dick &
Jane" reading primers.

Warhanik studied at Wellesley College (Degree in Classical Literature) and
painting with Charles Woodbury. At the University of Washington, she studied
with Walter Isaacs and Helen Rhodes and privately with Paul Morgan Gustin
and Edgar Forkner.

She exhibited locally with the Seattle Fine Arts Society (predecessor of the
Seattle Art Museum) where she won a prize in 1917. She exhibited in all of
the local Annuals from 1916 through the 1950s.

In 1930, Elizabeth Warhanik became one of the Founders of the Women Painters
of Washington and the first President of the organization. With the WPW, she
exhibited locally and nationally, winning several awards. She was a member
of the Northwest Watercolor Society and the Northwest Printmakers, as well.

Nationally, she exhibited at the Portland Art Museum, the Pennsylvania
Academy of Fine Arts, Wichita Art Museum, American Arts Alliance, NY, and
the Western Association of Museum Directors (several venues in museums on
the west coast).

In 1930, she had a solo exhibition with the Seattle Fine Arts Society and in
1938, a solo exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum.
