Elizabeth Casqueiro is a visual artist who was born in England and grew up in Portugal. She came to live in the United States first as a high school exchange student and later as a graduate student. A resident of Washington DC, she works from her studios in Georgetown and Easton, MD.

During a previous career at the World Bank Group she traveled to the far reaches of the globe. Today, her artistic career takes her on a different and equally fascinating journey. Elizabeth has a background in design and architecture and studied art at St. Martin’s College of Art in London, the Corcoran School of Art, and the Washington Studio School.
