Artist Profile

Helga Haller

Mediums: Watercolor, Pastel, Acrylic

As a teen in post-war Germany, Helga's accidental encounter with Franz Marc's "Red Horses" ignited a passion for vibrant, emotionally charged, symbolic colors. Just before emigrating to the US, the gift of a good camera led to years of involvement with photography. Another chance encounter introduced her as a young mother to ceramics, which in turn motivated her to enroll in art school and to earn an MFA in ceramics from the University of Michigan.

Her works, in rich pastels, watercolors and mixed media, are spontaneous depictions of her environment. They reference nature without imitating it, in a "painterly realism" style.

Helga's work has been exhibited in juried shows in several states and she has earned awards in both ceramics and painting.
