Elizabeth Hoen
1868 - 1955

Elizabeth Hoen was born in Santa Rosa, California, and is known for her watercolor landscapes. Like another notable Sonma County artist, Grace Allison Griffith, Elizabeth studied art with Lorenzo P. Latimer, who proved to be quite influential in her work.

Elizabeth's father, Berthhold Hoen is part of Sonoma County history. He purchased land from the Carillo land grants (owned by the mother of General Vallejo's wife and her brother Julio) which later became Santa Rosa's downtown area. He helped lay out the plan for the city of Santa Rosa.

Elizabeth kept a studio in Los Angeles. She died at the Santa Rosa Hotel in 1955. In 1917, she exhibited at the San Francisco Art Association. Her works are included in the collection of the Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, California, and in the Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa.
