Water Glass and Fruit by Liz Gembarski

Liz Gembarski, of Leonardo, NJ is a graduate from Rowan University’s art program with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acrylic painting and illustration.  Having always been fascinated with the high realism of the master painters of the past, Liz decided to study photorealism and developed her unique style in contemporary realism.  Liz has been a part of Atlantic Artisans for the past 8 years and is very excited to exhibit her new work.
