(1891-1977) Elisabeth Paxton Oliver was born in Glasgow, Virginia. As a result of the bias against women artist in her time, she used initials to conceal her gender, hoping to have her work judged on its own merits! She moved to Tryon, North Carolina and found success with watercolor paintings of birds. She later moved to Georgia and died in 1977.
