Ulla Hasens artistic work emerges beyond cognitive concepts from the body memory that manifests itself in the gesture. She understands the gesture itself with Jean Francois Billeter as a phenomenon of the integration of consciousness into the activity of the body. World knowledge that has sunk into the background of consciousness she experience as a strong energetic momentum and as intuition, which enable her to work very quickly.

1st Place

Inner Core

As with my music, my artwork reflects balance, rhythm and harmony.

I have had an interest in making art since I was a child. In my youth and beyond, my knowledge and skills were developed at various institutions in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, and I received a scholarship from the Moore Institute of Art in Philadelphia. I had additional training at the Long Beach Island Foundation, NJ,
DeCordova Art Institute and Northeastern University, MA

I moved to Columbia, Maryland in 1976, and soon thereafter discovered soon after that I had a talent as a singer. Wow! Who saw that coming?

My focus shifted away from visual art to music, and I embarked on a 30-year career as a jazz vocalist. I recorded several CDs, and I received several prestigious awards for my original lyrics and music.

When I began having vocal difficulties a few years ago, I began to experience a strong impulse to return to my first love, the creation of visual images. I set up a space to work, gathered up some art supplies and got busy.

I especially enjoy creating portraits, seeking the humanity and spark of each of my subjects; establishing an intimate bond with their essence.

I equally delight in the unpremeditated joy and freedom of creating abstract imagery, using the mediums of watercolor, alcohol ink, acrylic and pastels.

There are no boring subjects. You must find the magic in each. Every time.

Andrea Hellman, Ed.D., is an associate professor of English at Missouri State University. She studied studio art at the School of the Worcester Art Museum with masters of painting and printmaking like Tom Lewis, Sally Bishop, and Ella Delyanis.
Andrea’s current art projects are about play and exploration. She experiments with color schemes, curious shapes, light patterns, varied lines, dynamic compositions, and her own texture brushes. Her digital brushwork expresses feelings of warmth and connectedness. She occupies herself with “what if” questions to generate creative imagery: What if I could capture a 360-degree view of these woods? What if a dragonfly’s wing was a stained glass window? What if these blooms crystallized or melted? She visualizes her thoughts and sensations in the present.
Andrea lives in the picturesque Ozarks region in a thriving arts community, surrounded by beauty in all directions. Artists, actors, poets, writers, musicians, and dancers are everywhere, set against a stunning backdrop of scenic parks, hills, woodlands, and lakes. She is a collector of fleeting moments of pure pleasure.
