Elbert Shubert was born in Kansas in 1963, raised in Jacksonville Fl. He is primarily a self taught painter. His style is a painterly approach with emphasis on light and shadow. Ever since he can remember Elbert has wanted to be a portrait artist but has fallen in love with Plein air painting in recent years. He works almost exclusively from life and his works also include portraits and still life. Plein air combines his love of creating with his love of the outdoors.
He likes nothing better than to go out with like minded artist friends and interpret the world around him.
