Artist Bio
Eleanore Berman paired her talents for art and for horticulture to enshrine her Beverly Hills garden in impressionistic paintings. Although she was educated as an artist and exhibited her paintings in galleries and museums around the world, her artistic expertise also bloomed brightly in the garden she cultivated for four decades behind the Colonial Georgian house she called home. "Take a drawing class," she advised other gardeners, sharing her gardening wisdom in a Times article about her in February. Working with artistic tools -- charcoal, pen, ink -- disciplines the hand and trains the thinking about what and where to plant, she said. Born in New York City, Berman as a child began sketching the flowers, bridges and ponds of Central Park. She studied with Modernist painter Josef Albers and sculptor Ossip Zadkine at Black Mountain College in North Carolina, earned a bachelor's degree at UCLA and was tutored in Paris by Cubist painter Fernand Leger and in New York by painter Manfred Schwartz and printmaker Robert Blackburn. http://articles.latimes.com/2004/sep/04/local/me-berman4
