Elizabeth Harrison (nee Tatchell) was born in London, England in 1907. She studied for seven years at the Brighton College of Art and later worked in the studios of Louis Ginnett, R.O.I. in Sussex and of George Alexander, R.B.S. in Chelsea. She also was employed for four years in the London workshops of Clayton and Bell, the internationally known firm of glass painters. In 1931, she came to Canada and settled in Kingston, where both she and her husband, Eric Harrison were employed at Queen's University. Elizabeth taught in the Department of Fine Arts and was also art consultant to the Kingston Board of Education. Elizabeth Harrison's paintings have been exhibited widely in both Canada and Britain and she has given many lectures and addresses across Canada on radio and television. Elizabeth Harrison was also an author, she wrote of her life experiences in Ottawa during the war years and of her life and interests in Kingston. One of her books, Self Expression Through Art, is now in its second edition. Mrs. Elizabeth Harrison passed away in October of 2001.
