Elisabeth Ferber was born in Belleville, Illinois, but spent most of her adult life in Central Florida. Born of artistic parents and having spent much of her childhood in Europe, Elisabeth was exposed to a very classical art background which in turn influenced her current style of oil painting. Elisabeth is primarily a landscape painter whose second love is to paint wildlife.
“My artwork can best be described as “classical representational”. I do not seek to change what is, but to paint it and present it as I perceived it at the time. I strive to create a painting that shows the beauty and character of wildlife and/or landscapes. Although I do paint a little of everything, wildlife and their landscapes are my favorite. My landscapes are painted from life whenever possible and the wildlife is studied and photographed by myself. My goal is to capture scenes in the hope that others will see and appreciate the land that we have today.”
Elisabeth is a member of Oil Painters of America, Plein Air Florida and Central Florida Plein Air Artists. The artist’s studio is located in Mt Dora, Florida. Tours are available upon request.
