Elizabeth Adkisson grew up in Devine, Texas. She attended Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio Texas where she studied psychology and sociology. Later she earned a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family therapy from St. Mary’s University.
Elizabeth took her first ceramics class when she was 9 years old, but art didn’t become her passion until 2000. Following the loss of her husband, it became her therapeutic outlet, and for several years she took class after class learning hand-building and wheel techniques at a small pottery studio in San Antonio.
Elizabeth seeks inspiration from nature, from other peoples’ creative works, and day-to-day objects. She is continually on the lookout for unusual textures and techniques that reflect and enhance her personal style.
