This portrait of St Elizabeth Ann Seton was painted in acrylics on archival cotton rag board. She is in a cabin in winter, symbolizing the hardships she endured for her Lord and the vocation He called her to live out. It would be a bleak picture indeed if not for the warm colors of dawn. Elizabeth was responsible for the dawn of Catholic schools and a new religious order in this country. What a gift she was to the USA!
Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, S.C., (August 28, 1774 – January 4, 1821) was the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church (September 14, 1975). She established the first Catholic girls' school in the nation in Emmitsburg, Maryland, where she also founded the first American congregation of religious sisters, the Sisters of Charity.
