Chelmsford, MA Art Teacher, Artist, Author, Poet


Alma's 3 guiding rules in producing fine art work are: 1) accurate observation; 2) emotional power; 3) the ability to make the art subject stand for all humanity using the ten offices of the eye namely darkness, light, body and color, figure and scenery, distance and nearness, movement and repose. Perspective is a permanent rule in her teaching as well as proportion when dealing with human figures. She produces her work in realism of classical realm of the pre- Renaissance, High Renaissance, Impressionism mastering the renaissance techniques of cangiane, unione, and sfumato created by Leonardo. Michaelangelo Buonarroti was the great master artist she admires the most.
