Artist – POMM

Hepner_Pomm_medium

Pomm has been an exhibiting artist for over 30 years. She was born in Los Angeles, but raised by her French mother and grandmother, both established artists. Her mother, who was born in Paris, read a novel by French authoress Colette in which one of the characters was a little girl named Pomme. She loved the name, which means “apple”, and took the “e” off to ensure correct pronunciation.

While at college, Pomm moved to France and studied art in Aix-en-Provence. Pomm fell in love with the region’s Old World Architecture. This passion is incorporated so beautifully in her watercolor compositions. As a viewer, you sense the arresting depth and signature warmth in her work.

Returning to America, Pomm studied with the internationally renowned artist Scott Moore in Laguna Beach, California. Pomm created and perfected a unique style using only translucent watercolors applied in many layers that allowed her to paint the strong colors, light and shadows that create the “feel” of Europe in her paintings. Within her work is Pomm’s trademark “hidden apple”, the artist’s signature of authenticity.

Collected worldwide, her paintings are included in the collections of Tom Cruise, David Lettermen, Priscilla Presley and Rudy Giuliani to name just a few. Her Watercolor painting “Unspoken Courage” brought nation acclaim after September 11, 2001. This piece now hangs at the New Your City Fire Department Memorial Wall and Training Center. Pomm also has one of her works “We Believe in Peace” hanging at the United Nations building in New York City.

Most recently, Pomm became a Board Member of Artists for Human Rights International, a group formed with the purpose of bringing artists together with the common cause of raised awareness and education of Human Rights. Pomm has also received an award for good works from the Vatican. Pomm is the only artist to receive such an award usually reserved for dignitaries and presidents.
