Lizabeth Madal spent her early years living along the Eastern Seaboard. She relocated to Southern California and earned a Master of Arts Degree, with Honors from California State University, Northridge.
She later attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco and began painting with oils, transferring the beauty of the California landscape to canvas.
In 2002, Lizabeth moved to Santa Barbara where she converted an old barn on her property to a studio and art gallery. The beauty of California’s Central Coast provides inspiration for many of her paintings.
Her work can be seen at the Santa Barbara Design Center in Santa Barbara, California and Mediterranee Antiques and Art in Carpinteria, California.
