Liz Lee

Born and raised in Beverly, MA, Liz Lee has had a love of art from a very early age. While still in high school, she attended night courses in drawing at Montserrat School of Art and took an intensive six-week summer course in illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. She went on to earn a BFA at Long Island University. Within a few years of graduation, Liz took a job with Droll Designs, an art factory that produced a high-end line of ceramics. She started as their customer service representative and eventually, over a 20-year career, became the office manager, painter, designer, photographer, and graphic artist. Liz then moved on to local company Hestia Creations, where she utilized her many skills as their lead artist. While working there, she went back to school and became certified in computer-aided drafting. Along with a love of painting and drawing, Liz also enjoys crochet, knitting, sewing, costume design, and 3D printing.

 

Leslie Fahn Rosenberg

This piece is representative of crafts, but is not the work of the Craft judge

Leslie Fahn Rosenberg received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, where she studied Graphic Design and Illustration. She has also studied at Carnegie Mellon University, Philadelphia College of Art, and Montserrat School of Art. She is a member of a number of local arts associations and teaches drawing, collage, and mixed media to adults in Marblehead and to gifted and talented inner-city youth in Lynn. For the past 20 years in her studio at LynnArts, Inc., Leslie has been painting, drawing, and sculpting full-time. She enjoys using vivid color and experimenting with different mediums, styles, and images on a variety of surfaces. Lately, she has taken her work to a new level by allowing herself the freedom to push her work until she either loves it or almost destroys it. Then she cuts out the best parts and uses them on a totally new and different piece. Pieces of paintings become parts of sculptures, and sculptures become 3D paintings
