Bio

About the Artist 
Eliza Moser is a contemporary realist painter from 
Springfield, Massachusetts. From an early age, Eliza 
developed an interest in classical art, beginning her 
study of traditional realist techniques at the age of 14 
under the direction of Angel Academy alumnus 
Christina Mastrangelo, with whom she trained for 
five years. 

In 2012 Eliza first oil painting was accepted into the 
Academic Artists Association's 62nd National 
Exhibition, receiving 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, such as at the 2013 Alpine Fellowship in 
Switzerland, and most recently at the Guild of Boston
 Artists 2018 Regional Exhibition. 

Eliza's desire to learn more about the techniques of the 
old masters lead her to Florence, Italy, where she 
enrolled in the Florence Academy of Art to study oil 
painting. At her graduation ceremony in 2016 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, seeing to merge the ideals of classic 
technique with current ideas expressive of her own 
artistic voice. She is the creator of 
Professional Artist Interviews, a blog which focuses on 
the conversation of how artists can make a living 
by their art. At the same time, she teaches both from 
her studio in Springfield, MA and at various locations 
around Western New England.
