Elisabeth Salberg

Auburn, ME

Elisabeth P. Salberg began painting six years ago after retiring from a career as a Registered Nurse. “I fell in love with the world of art many years ago when I studied art history at Duke University and learned about the Renaissance masters. But life took me down an altogether different path, and it was not until I retired that I allowed myself the luxury and the hard work of striving to become an artist working with oils. The beauty I see in Maine is a constant inspiration, and quite a challenge, as I try to transform the world of color, shape and light I see into a painting that might be enjoyed by others. This new journey has reinforced my belief that if someone really wants to pursue something, but fears failure, one should just take the leap and give it a try. Time and tide wait for no one. Seize the day.” Elisabeth’s paintings have been on display in Portland, Kennebunkport, Yarmouth, Falmouth, Sanford, Belfast, Brunswick, Bath, Norway, Lewiston and Auburn. She is a member of Maine Women in the Arts. Elisabeth lives in Auburn with her husband and their golden retriever. Her website is oilpaintingsofmaine.com.
