About this title


This book contains 97 multiethnic watercolor portaits by noted Southern California artist, Mary Heussenstamm. Each portrait is displayed on a full 8 1/2 by 11 inch page. This elegantly produced book also contains pages devoted to a biography of Mary Heussenstamm and a description of her materials and techniques. Her models were chosen from the streets of Los Angeles, painted in natural light out-of-doors, each portrait completed between 45 minutes to one hour.

About the Author:

Mary Heussenstamm was born in 1930 in Southern California. After becoming a registered nurse, she retired at age 59 to devote herself fulltime to mastering the art of watercolor portraiture. Entirely self-taught, even her earliest portraits revealed a truly extraordinary gift. In 1994 she won the Artist of the Year Award from the Pasadena Arts Council, and in that same year the Pasadena Artist Alliance selected her as Artist-In-Residence at Pasadena City College.

Her first book, Multiethnic Watercolor Portraits, sold out in less than 3 years
