Elizabeth Eagle is a professional artist and art educator living in Dubuque, IA. Elizabeth received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2006. For the past twelve years, she has taught in the Visual Arts Department at Dubuque Senior High School. Elizabeth continues to develop an ongoing series of paintings titled Lake House, which developed throughout her graduate studies at the School of Visual Art, Pennsylvania State University, where she received a Master of Professional Studies in Art Education in 2017.
The Lake House series is a personal narrative that explores the de/construction of familial photographs through collage and re/construction of memory, time, and place. The artist uses photographs from family photo albums as both a visual and thematic resource, focusing on a specific set of photos which reimagines two lake houses seen over two different time periods. This ongoing series has developed into a familial and abstract self-portraiture for the artist.
