Matthew Liebler was born in February 1999, and has been actively pursuing his passion for the fine arts since 2012. For two years he was solely self taught in his drawing skills, and it wasn’t until 2014 when he began to receive private tutoring. His tutor was Mary Hamm Wertz, who is an East Aurora Art Society member, and she taught him regularly for 3 years. Under the teaching of Mrs. Wertz, Matthew perfected his drawing skills and learned new media, including colored pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, and watercolor painting. Two of his drawings won ribbons in the East Aurora town wide art festival’s student exhibit during this time. He also received commissions and displayed and sold his first professional quality prints at age 17.
Since 2018 Matthew has been studying digital and fine art at Genesee Community College. He has exhibited a couple of his pieces on campus in the Roz Steiner Art Gallery.
Matthew lives with his parents and 6 siblings in North Java, NY
