Sep 23rd - Sep 29th


Elizabeth Radmore was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and immigrated to Canada when she was a child with her parents and two younger brothers. Even as a young girl she showed an aptitude for art, buying her own easel when she was a teenager. She started with pastel and watercolour but soon graduated to oils. Currently she concentrates on painting using acrylic paint and still paints on canvas. She is a member of the Ottawa Mixed Media Association.
Her early adult life left little time for honing her artistic skills and it was not until the last 15 years or so that she revealed again her artistic passions. A void due to the death of her beloved mother prompted her to begin writing, her first book was based on her life as a youngster in Northern Ireland and is classified as ”fiction based on fact”. The novel,”Cushla: Memoirs of a reluctant gypsy girl” weaves actual events in her early life into a fascinating and entertaining novel. Her publisher described Elizabeth as a natural storyteller. Prompting from family members encouraged Elizabeth to follow that book with two sequels, Cushla: Gypsy Spirit and Cushla: Almost Magic. Gypsy Spirit describes the family`s immigration to Canada and the struggles in adapting to a new country, while Almost Magic was based on recollections of her adult teen life and growing up in Canada. Almost Magic was nominated for an Ottawa Book Award.
Elizabeth`s fourth book, titled Lilith is not part of the Cushla series. This book is again fiction based on fact and recounts the tale of a young girl faced with terrible circumstances, including her horrific treatment at the hands of the Magdalene laundries.
