Born in Falkirk in 1931, Elizabeth Blackadder is one of the country’s most highly regarded, best-know artists with an international reputation
She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art where she trained under Sir William Gillies, John Maxwell and Robert Henderson Blyth where fellow students included David McClure, David Michie and her future husband John Houston.
She enjoyed early and sustained success exhibiting on both Scotland, principally with The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh and in London with the Mercury Gallery
Perhaps best known for her watercolours of flowers and cats, she is also equally productive in oils with delightful smaller scale still lives of exotic fruit and vegetable, fish, arrays of seafood as well as townscapes from various foreign travels including many of Venice.
She draws superbly and this is particularly evident in her prodigious output as a highly skilled maker of original small edition artist’s prints which she has made at Glasgow Print Studio over a long fruitfully productive period, allowing original work by a significant artist, in the form of etchings and screenprints to be purchased at a fraction of the cost of a watercolour or oil.
