Elissa Gore


Elissa Gore paints large atmospheric landscapes. When searching for a new image, she looks for a harmonic moment in nature. She often uses a panoramic format. Resembling a Chinese scroll, it helps viewers imagine moving through these spaces.

Gore’s history includes more than twenty solo exhibits and fifty public collections. She studied at the University of Pennsylvania and taught college art for 20 years. Also trained as a scientific illustrator, she now paints full-time and occasionally teaches workshops in botanical drawing and plein air painting at the New York Botanical Garden and around the country.
