eva in studio

I was born in Germany and grew up in Buffalo, New York. I remember drawing and painting and doing some sort of art work all my life. I graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York and have attended several workshops in various art media throughout my career. I have taught both children and adults for many years in Maryland and in Oregon.

My work has been shown in several galleries in the Washington DC and Maryland areas as well as Idaho, Colorado, Illinois and Oregon. Presently, I am represented by the Leigh Gallery in Chicago, Illinois and the Portland Art Museum's Rental Gallery in Portland, Oregon. I have been fortunate to be included in several juried shows, national and local, in the recent past and have been awarded several prizes.

I spent many years as a printmaker and continue to do monoprints often adding collage and other water media to the printed surface. Several years ago, I began exploring various types of water media and collage. I work using many layers of thin paint to create a richly textured surface, with or without collage.

Somewhere in between the brush and paper and many students, I raised four sons and one husband.

Lately I have returned to my first love,oil paint. Presently  I am experimenting with a cold wax medium with the oil paint.  This has provided me with another avenue to explore mood and layers and texture.
