Elizabeth McGrath, who was based in San Antonio at the time of her Artpace residency, is currently a psychotherapist in Boulder, CO. In her prior career as an artist, she made things that went together as installations. Her work often evoked associations with domestic materials and experiences, including the work she created during her Artpace residency in 1996.
McGrath graduated from Austin College, received her MFA at the University of Texas at San Antonio and went on to earn a MA in Transpersonal Counseling from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.
In 1994 she was selected by a regional panel of arts professionals who convened at Artpace to participate in the Foundation’s London Studio program in April 1995, for which she spent six weeks in England. The same year she also received a Mid-American Arts Alliance/NEA Fellowship Award in sculpture.
She moved to New York City in 1998, entered in psychoanalysis, and eventually decided to pursue a different profession. She currently practices as a registered psychotherapist in Boulder, where she works with individuals, couples and specializes in facilitating psychotherapy groups.
