Myra Feldman started painting at the age of seven in her hometown, Washington, DC. In those early years, her painting classes started at the National Zoo painting various animals while watching their behavior. Later in school, she was heavily influenced by her many teachers including Phillip Ratner and Gustav Trois. She graduated with a BS in Advertising Design from the University of Maryland. Through the years, she studied painting and drawing at The Maryland Institute of Art, Silvermine Guild of Art, and The George Washington University, as well as many workshops around the country. In her professional life as a medical illustrator, technical illustrator, and graphic designer, she acquired the drawing skills that would carry her through her artistic life. Her accomplishments include illustrating a series of anatomy textbooks published by Little Brown and Company and Lippincott Williams and Wilkins. The books are sold to medical students across the country as well as translated copies for the international market. The human form has always been of great interest to her and is reflected in her work. As a painter, she captures people doing ordinary things as they go through their day; watching gesture, color, shadow, and form. She currently lives in Scottsdale, Arizona. Her art can be found across the US.
