Liz Fusco is an award-winning, Long Island-based artist and New York State Certified Art Educator who has been painting and drawing for most of her life. Liz began painting in oils and her subjects were typically landscape and nature scenes. Being an avid gardener and lover of plants and flowers, Liz had always wanted to learn the skill of Botanical Illustration. After completing a three-year-long process at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx, New York, Liz added Certified Botanical Illustration to her other education credentials.
Liz enjoys teaching art to a diverse group of people, including a special program for seniors and people living with Dementia that she facilitates at the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum, where she is currently working.
A nature lover, Liz enjoys painting “flower portraits” and butterflies in watercolor, using the many specimens in her own garden as her subjects. She works either outside in her garden or home studio in Kings Park, New York.
