Lizabeth Madal





Lizabeth Madal was born in Camden, New Jersey and spent her childhood living on the East Coast. As a teenager, she relocated to Southern California and earned a Master of Arts Degree, with Honors from California State University, Northridge. She later attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and while living in the Bay Area, began painting land and seascapes.

By 2002, Lizabeth moved to Santa Barbara where she has since made her home. She has exhibited in various shows and galleries in California and became the Artist-in-Residence at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. During this time, Lizabeth had two solo exhibitions at the museum which featured California Central Coast themes.

Today, she continues to find inspiration in the beauty of California, a lifetime of coastal living, as well as her travels to England, France and Italy.

Currently, Lizabeth’s work can be seen in Santa Barbara at House to Home Design Center, Bella Rosa Galleries and Santa Barbara Design Center.
