Please join us on Tuesday, November 17th at 6:30 PM as we host a reception for Hampton artist Elizabeth Barcomb, who loves to talk about her lifelong passion for doing needlework. She has explored many different styles, but her most favorite is crewel embroidery because of the amount of individuality it allows in terms of shading and color nuances. She derives her inspiration from Mother Nature and other still life compositions, such as her own flower arrangements.
Her love of doing needlework began as a child and has continued throughout her life. She was first taught by her mother and then continued this pursuit under the tutelage of the sisters of the Academie Villa Augustina in Goffstown. In the past Elizabeth has conducted classes and passed on her love of this art form, attracting students and teaching on an individual basis.
Elizabeth considers her time spent doing needlework as her peaceful time. It allows for introspection, contemplation and meditation. Many a concern has been resolved during this time!
Elizabeth’s creativity does not stop with her needlework. She is a professionally trained singer who has performed in New York City, Boston and the Lake George Opera. These days you may hear her at weddings or doing solo work at various churches during the summer. She is an active and integral member of the music program at the Hampton United Methodist Church.
