Bio

About the Artist 
    Eliza Moser is a 21-year old American artist from Springfield, Massachusetts.
   
Eliza began studying classical art techniques at the age of 14 under Angel Academy alumnus Christina Mastrangelo, with whom she trained for five years.
   
In 2012 Eliza's first oil painting was accepted into the Academic Artists Association's 62nd National Exhibition, and received the Academic Council Award. She was the youngest artist to ever have been accepted into the annual exhibition at that time. Since then her work has been shown in various local and national exhibitions. 
   
In 2016 Eliza graduated from the Florence Academy of Art, in Florence, Italy. At the graduation ceremony her advanced still life was selected for the award Best Still Life of the Year.   
   
Currently, Eliza is focusing on creating a body of her own work, separate from her academic training. At the same time, she teaches workshops both in her studio in Springfield, MA, and at The Wethersfield Academy for the Arts in CT., while continuing to accept painting and drawing commissions.
