Elizabeth McGrath (United States) has always had an eye for the tortured beauty in the grotesqueries of life; this appreciation is nowhere more evident than in her work. Haunted by a troubled childhood of religious cult imprisonment, she found an outlet to vent her anger in the early 90’s fronting the hardcore punk Band Tongue and co-founding Censor this, a quarterly counter culture art and music fanzine. Along with hustling odd art jobs, these endeavors landed her a life changing internship with animation director Fred Stuhr and onto the doorsteps of the Lowbrow art scene, a scene that naturally interacted with underground music, often sharing the same venues. Experimenting with a variety of materials she has developed a unique style that is collected and exhibited world wide. In 2004 she joined the goth country band Miss Derringer, touring worldwide with bands including Blondie, Reverend Horton Heat, Girl In A Coma and Cracker.
