Pomm: Biography of a Master Painter

Capturing the motion and energy behind life's creative moments—that's what Los Angeles master painter Pomm strives to do every time she sits at her easel. An exhibiting artist for the past 30 years, Pomm was born in Los Angeles to a Paris-born mother who named her daughter Pomme—which means "apple" in French—after a young character in a novel written by French author Colette. Pomm's mother dropped the "e" in order to ensure the correct pronunciation, and to honor her daughter with the uniquely elegant moniker.

Pomm's watercolor painting "Unspoken Courage" brought her national acclaim after September 11, 2001. This painting is displayed on the New York Fire Department's memorial wall in New York City as well as in 35 different N.Y. firehouses. Most recently, Pomm became part of Artists for Human Rights International, a group formed to unite artists under the common cause of raising awareness and educating the public about human rights issues.

More on the Los Angeles Master Painter

Pomm moved to France to attend college and study art in Aix-en-Provence, where she fell in love with the Old World architecture. Her passion for this art is indelibly and beautifully incorporated into her signature watercolor compositions.

After college, Pomm returned to California and studied with the internationally renowned artist Scoot Moore in Laguna Beach. During this time, she created and perfected a unique style using translucent watercolors applied in many layers, allowing her to create the powerful colors, light, and shadows that capture the feel of Europe in her work. Embedded within each of Pomm's paintings is her signature "hidden apple," which marks the authenticity and exceptional quality of all her creations.

Not unlike her predecessors, Realism masters Monet and Renoir, who revolted against traditional academia by painting what they saw from within, Pomm made a similar and compelling transition in her work by painting what she "viewed from the outside and felt within" to express herself "from the inside out." This engaging transition can be felt and understood in Pomm's expressive and moving oil paintings. Although there are artists who can cross over different mediums and styles, few make the transition successfully. Pomm, however, has not only achieved it, but brilliantly excels at it. The Expressionist style presented in her oil work transcends the viewer into an emotionally heightened "outer world."
