Elizabeth Colomba was born and raised in France, on the outskirts of Paris, amid the rich inspiring Caribbean heritage of her family. In the late 90’s she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in painting and storyboarding. Colomba is inspired by faces, rooms, or clothing. These things spark her imagination and the painting or drawing evolves.
When asked who her artistic heroes are, she replies, “I’d like to have Sargent’s touch, Caravaggio’s light, Degas’ vision, Vermeer’s inscrutability and Velázquez’s knowledge”. The influence of each can be seen in Elizabeth Colomba’s work.
