About The Artist




Elise Weinrich Geary grew up in Michigan and took classes at Cranbrook Academy of Art prior to attending Bennington College. Her initial focus on a career in art changed to science, leading to medical school at Medical University of South Carolina and a Dermatology residency at Duke Medical University. She opened a private practice in Durham, NC in 1982.


altIn 1993, Elise renewed her interest in art and began showing and selling her watercolors in various galleries in North Carolina until retiring from her full-time medical practice to move to Vero Beach, Florida in 2010.  


Elise furthered her art education through study with nationally known artists Linda Daly Baker, Deborah Gooch, and Timothy Sanchez. She has also completed post-graduate work with a 1-year Art Mastery Immersion Program with noted artist and master teacher Marianne Mitchell. This has allowed her to move into a deeper realm of artistic expression through abstraction, creating paintings inspired by the connection between human spirit and nature.  Her background in science has evolved into a respect for the mystical and unexplainable...and an exploration via her paintings into the unknown.
