June 9, 2021 HAS Meeting

Barbara Morse on Sharp Focus Drawing

Wednesday June 9, 2021          7:00 PM          at Lawrence Barn in Hollis NH

Barbara Morse will share the tools and supplies she requires to do her work in Graphite along with samples of her finished work and a partially
completed piece to best demonstrate the process she uses for her Sharp Focus drawings.

Her pieces include a wide range of images covering from landscapes to still life to non-traditional portraits provoking thought and evoking a variety
of personal emotions in the viewer.

Barbara’s Bio

After majoring in Illustration at the Paier College of Art in New Haven, Connecticut, she began her art career with going into Fine Arts. Several years later after completing her portfolio she started working freelance as a commercial illustrator and pursued this field for more than a dozen years.
Feeling unfulfilled creating work through the vision of others Ms. Morse returned to the Fine Arts to develop her concept of Sharp Focus drawings.

Her work has been represented at galleries around New England. She is a member of the Copley Society of Art in Boston and where she has
achieved the level of Copley Artist.









                 More of her work can be seen on her web site:  www.barbaramorseart.com

                         Thank You Barbara for being our June Presenter!
