The Artwork of Liz Ferber-Wolter - A 30+ Year Journey

All my life, no matter what paths I followed, I always drew and painted. Being Self-Taught just means that the path that I followed to learn was set by myself and not given to me by a teacher or school. However, I learned from many wonderful artists by reading, by watching over their shoulders, by looking at fine painters at museums, and not being afraid to try, setting tasks for myself to learn technique, perspective, and all those skills needed to finally look at something, feel something, and express it in the best way I can on paper and canvas.

I worked in the theatre directly after college painting sets, doing stage lighting, running spotlight, and was assistant to choreographer/director Lee Becker Theodore and secretary to producer, Norman Kean. That was in the 70s. In 1981 I married my husband and in 1983 we had a wonderful little baby girl. I couldn't leave her to daycare, and we decided that I would stay home and we could get along on one salary.

I began to draw my new baby, and my puppy, and then everything I saw. It was my husband who always loved my artwork, would drag it out for everyone to "ohhh" and "ahhh" over, and who thought I could be professional. This turned a passion into a life long career and I will always be grateful to him. Later, when my 2nd baby girl was born, I had new inspiration both in painting her, and in painting things for her delight.

I am self-taught. What this translates to is that I have sketched and drawn from life and painted for about 60 years, and seriously for 30 years. Whenever I did not understand something, like perspective, I would set myself projects and read and practice. When I wanted to learn about portraiture, I could not afford to take a $325 course, so I paid $25 for a booth at a fair, and drew people for $1 each. They did not care how it turned out for only $1 and I got so much practice that I ended that fair well on my way to being a pretty good caricature / portrait sketch artist. Reading and looking at other's work did the rest. Whenever I saw an artist at work I would watch. I always love visiting the museums.

Over time, my work has changed depending upon what I learned, what medium I am using, and what the purpose of the piece is. I paint for myself and for commission. I teach what I have learned: Portraits and Profiles, Oil Painting Techniques, Sketching for Fun and Figure Drawing are some of my classes. I also began working about 5 years ago at a 9-5 job as a researcher in the aviation industry. I draw lunchtime, after work and on the weekends. It remains my passion.

Lately, for play, I love to go sketching the models at Dr. Sketchy Asbury Park - which is local to me. It is a good time, and if you are in the neighborhood, and like to draw, I highly recommend checking it out.

Hi: My name is Liz and I am a self-taught artist. I sketch outside, paint constantly in all sizes from miniatures to ceilings. I am a member of The Portrait Society of America, have served on the Board of Directors and taught and was an exhibiting member at the Guild of Creative Art in NJ, and have taught many classes, my favorites being life drawing and sketching for fun. If you are local to me, contact me and let me know you are interested and when I begin a new class, come join us. There is no pressure, just people who love to sketch in fun places. I hope you like my work and, as a professional artist, I REALLY HOPE you like it enough to want to own it.

PAINTINGS AND PRINTS payment must be received in full prior to the piece being sent out and within 5 business days from the sale.
COMMISSIONS: I stand by my work and will work with you until you are satisfied. Small Paintings can be done with a 2-3 week turnaround. Watercolor / Pencil / Charcoal / Pastel are straightforward, but Oil Paintings take longer because the Oil Paints need time to set and dry enough for shipping.
LARGE COMMISSIONS: I may charge a deposit to cover the costs of materials which would be nonrefundable. Be assured it would not be for my time, but to help lay out the cost of the piece.
For Commissioned pieces and Original Artwork, I ship flat. For my limited edition prints and giclee prints I will ship in a tube with the print protected in a clear 100% acid free sleeve. Cards are sent each one in a protective clear 100% acid free sleeve, and bundled together with a lovely ribbon to make it suitable for yourself or gift giving.
Insurance for expensive items is always a good idea, but because these are mostly original artwork I cannot make an exact copy - they are one of a kind.
Refunds and Exchanges
Expensive Artwork Should Be Insured.
Limited Edition Prints / Giclee Prints / Cards: If you are not fully satisfied for any reason I will accept returns, except that buyer will have to cover shipping costs.
Original Artwork: Again, if you are not fully satisfied you can return the painting or drawing for a full refund minus the shipping costs. If an item is sent UPS, they always have $100. insurance included in the cost.
Commissioned Artworks: Again, I stand by my work and will make sure you are fully satisfied, but because I have to purchase materials some commissioned pieces (larger works) may require a deposit which would not be refundable. Buyer pays for all shipping costs.

I am not responsible for the item's condition after it has shipped and on its way. I will make every effort to send this work fully protected and with the most safe way possible. I am equally not responsible if the buyer has given a wrong address or is gone and the artwork is left outside to the elements.
