Elizabeth Rivers was born in Hertfordshire, and studied at Goldsmith's College, London and later at the RA. She studied under André L'Hote in Paris, whose influence led to a long association with Evie Hone's stained glass studio in Dublin. She came to Ireland in 1935, and apart from the war years and a short period in 1955 she spent the rest of her life living and working in this country, finding inspiration among the mountains and villages of Connemara.
