Notice biographique
Elizabeth Holbrook was born in 1913 in Hamilton, Ontario. She began studying art at the Hamilton Technical Institute with Hortense Gorden and continued at the Ontario College of Art from which she graduated with A.O.C.A. She continued her studies in London, England at the Royal College of Art. A sculptor, Holbrook has works in many institutional, government, museum, gallery and private collections. Perhaps her best known work includes a bust of the Hon. Ellen Fairclough, the first female member of the Canadian Cabinet, and one of former Prime Minister John G.
