Miriam Schulman: Bio
Now, my art has been collected all over the world and appears on television sets such as NBC Parenthood and also in commercials. My art has been published on the covers of art magazines and in The New York Times. In addition to selling my original art and fine art prints, my art is also licensed to home decor products and gift items on cafepress and I am always looking for additional opportunities to share the joy of my art.
For me, art was a means to deal with the challenges of growing up. I found art to be a way to express myself. Ever since a fourth grade teacher declared me the "class artist", art became a constant and significant part of my life. I studied art and art history while at Dartmouth College, where I pursed a degree in Art History but also minored in engineering. I supported myself at college by working in the Art History department and was paid by the college to create artistic posters to promote campus events. Senior year, I had a solo show and upon graduation I was awarded the Adelbert Ames Fine Arts Award. When I graduated I pursued an initial career in finance to pay back my student loans, but I never gave up my dream to become a professional artist. I always managed a way to paint - I even took up watercolor by studying with noted watercolorists Elise Morenon, Mel Stabin and Charles Reid. However, in 2000, I left the financial world to pursue my passion for art full time, and I never looked back since.
