DCGIA was privileged to hear a power point presentation by Helen Serras-Herman about her evolutionary journey as an artist.
Part one consisted of family background and influence. Born to Greek parents in New York City, they moved back to Athens where she finished school.
She studied sculpture in Berlin. In 1983 she studied glyptography, gemology and became an FGA graduate.
She traveled a great deal and these travels inspired her imaginative designs in gem carving.
She moved to the Washington DC area and after many years sculpting in her studio in Annapolis, she and her husband moved to southern Arizona. Helen’s inspirations came from many sources; Greek mythology, Native American history, monster themes and the world of nature. Her talents were recognized and her fame recorded.
