Biography


pg_44361366732128.jpg

 

I am an artist with a variety of experiences. I graduated with a B.F.A in Fine Arts from Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and studied graphic design at the Minneapolis Technical College in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My formal education and a unique eye for art and form allow me to create memorable pieces.

 

Spanning more than 35 years, my career has taken me from art instruction and illustration to graphic design. Many of my pieces have been published and exhibited throughout the Twin Cities. I have been commissioned to do house portraits in pen-and-ink, washes and water colors for realtors, homeowners, and innkeepers from coast-to-coast. Even as far away as Shanghai, China. Many have been published in the Minnesota Bed & Breakfast  Association's Cookbook and even in a book on Scratchboard Techniques put out by Watson Guptill.

 

 If you wish to give a meaningful gift to someone you love, consider buying him or her a house portrait. It can be a holiday gift or a closing gift from a realtor.  

 

I have done  dollhouse,  houseboats, a historic house such as a Ranch, Gothic, Victorian , Modern, Craftsman House , Cottage or Rambler. Also, my small drawings are for sale as well as my paintings.

 

My art is inspired by architecture and artifacts. I am intrigued by storefronts and window reflections.  However my work is not restricted to structures; I also paint face portraits and landscapes. This year give a gift of a characature or a face portrait, some samples can be seen on this website under portraits. Many of my paintings have appeared in juried shows and the prestigous Minnesota State Fair Juried Show.

 

Comments are always appreciated. I look forward in hearing from you.

 

I am taking orders for the 2019 /2020 winter season and the entire 2020 year.

 

If you wish to give a meaningful gift to someone you love, consider buying him or her a  house portrait. It can be a holiday gift or a closing gift from a realtor.  

 

 Sincerely,

 

Joel David Abramson
