My grandmother and mother were artists and in retirement I decided to follow in their footsteps and in the process fell in love with watercolor. My subject matter preference is for my art to tell a story or create a feeling. That story may be joyful and full of whimsy or sad and thought provoking. I leave the interpretation to the viewer.
Elizabeth (Liz) Webster Haberman was born in San Diego, CA where she spent her early childhood. Her family relocated to Claremont, CA, a small college town, where they continue to reside. She returned to San Diego for college and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from San Diego State University. Following college she met her husband, Paul and they started their family.
After moving to West Los Angeles (Brentwood), Liz worked as an Interior Designer, having studied design at the UCLA Department of Interior Design. In her free time, she enjoyed creating pottery in her small home studio. She also studied the art of Lost Wax Casting at UCLA. Liz took a Basic Drawing class at the Brentwood Art Center in watercolor until her retirement.
After relocating to Central Oregon, Liz began to focus on her interest in watercolor painting. She studied with several well-known watercolorists including Helen Brown, Ben Lobenberg and Myrna Wacknov.
Her work has been juried into both local and statewide exhibitions. Liz won the Best of Show at the Watercolor Society of Oregon exhibit, Fall 2020, and had a solo exhibition at the Sunriver Public Library.
