Being an artiist started with me needing a picture of a cat for the cover of a children's short story I wrote.
I couldn't draw even a straight line. I first brought a book on how to draw cats which really sparked my interest. This was in year 2000.
I decided to take a watercolor class at the Perkins Performing Arts School in Moorestown, NJ and with my interest in the story of Van Gogh,
it really sparked my interest in art.
I took 2 watercolor classes consecutively. One 8 week class with the late Alice Steer Wilson and with Robert Sakson. They were some of the best teachers ever! Both renowned in their own right as great artist and members of the watercolor society.
Also being a musician, I manage to distribute my time with creating compositions of music that can be found at cd baby-'Love Songs Explosion' and 'Let's Dance'.
Music of Thelma Harcum I studied piano jazz techniques at Temple University with the late Curtis Harmon. He indeed was a wonderful instructor. I also studied piano at the Settlement school for 3 years and 3 years basic piano with Veronica Tapsony.
My recent study of the color wheel and new art medium, acrylic, is with art instructor and art associate, Don Stephens. For some reason, I never understood the color wheel and never had the time to advance in the study of it. Though I'm still learning more about colors and painting, I manage to get asked to exhibit my art and sell them online in various markets including my own art blog. Art Mediums
It is exciting to express this creative side of me as I have also been a nurse for most of my life.
One of my first landscape watercolor painting is in the International Encyclopedia of Modern and Contemporary Art called, 'Aunt Helen's Farm'.
I have done lots of fun things with art such as painting for up-and-coming art exhibits, workshops in my front yard, and church outdoor festivals.
One good thing about being an artist is you don't ever need to buy a note card and you can give prints to friends and relatives as gifts.
If you are a person who like myself, didn't think could draw, well I am testimony that you can.
You can make your life what you want and find joy in knowing many aspects of who you are.
