Eva Newermann Presents “The Magic is Inside You”; Shares New ePublication with Illustrations

The public is invited to the Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA) meeting to hear Eva Newermann, international traveler, author and painter.  Born in Norway, Eva, will share her experiences and insights as she traveled the globe.  Eva believes we all have some special qualities, or “magic” inside us – we just have to explore or get that little push, to find it. In addition to her “Speed Painting” techniques presentation, Eva will also share a few chapters of her newest eBook “Fear is in the Air”, which she wrote and illustrated.  The Rickie Report urges you to meet Eva.  Her enthusiasm is catchy! In addition, Eva will be at the Pen Women Extravaganza in March.  All the details are in this article.

 TRR: You’ve traveled the world.  How did you become a writer?

EN:

 

I was born in Stavanger, Norway.  Because of all the stories my Dad told me about the universe, stars and planets, I was always fascinated with flying. When I got older I became a flight attendant!  I also joined an astronomy club in Norway. After years of listening to the professors and astrophysicists I one day told them, “You know what?” It is very difficult to understand all these things going on in the universe. I think I will write a children’s book about our planets. Something everybody will understand.”
Acrylic Painting by Eva N

“Winter Scene” by Eva Newermann

Inspired by my career as a flight attendant for Trans World Airlines (TWA), I created the alter ego Ewa.  I am still traveling the world, meeting interesting and famous individuals, some of whom come to life as characters in FEAR IS IN THE AIR.  Many of the incidents in the book are based on real-life experiences and result in a cliffhanger ending.

 

"Images" by Eva

“Images” by Eva

Two years later ,in 2009, my first book “Universet som et maleri” ( Digital.no) was published.  When I read a book, I like to learn something, escape to another world, have some action and a lot of humor helps, too.  In the 60’s and 70’s I was living in Hollywood, CA, working as a model and a flight attendant.  I met a lot of movie stars and other interesting people through my travels.
Eva, as a model, in the 1960's

Eva, as a modeling Hollywood (1960’s)

My sister, Lillian and I really enjoyed the TV serial “Dexter”. I thought it would  be fun to write a ” mock biography” about a female flight attendant serial killer. I could tell all these crazy stories, that actually happened, when I was flying!  That’s how ” FEAR IS IN THE AIR” was born.
Eva and her Cosmos

Eva and her Cosmos

I completed the first in a trilogy of sci-fi thrillers, “Fear is In The Air” ( Amazon.com)  The main character, Ewa Lowe, is a blithe, spirited, female serial killer – with alien DNA.   FEAR IS IN THE AIR will captivate the reader as Ewa travels the world: Egypt, Norway, England and the USA.  This novel combines humor and action. Ewa falls in love with astrophysicist Adam Skai, who has an intriguing and mysterious (and alien) past.  He will change her life forever.
Painting by Eva Newermann

Painting by Eva Newermann

I have a lot of my own paintings and pictures in the book. Because of that and all the research, it took me three years to finish. I would say that 90% of all the stories in “FEAR IS IN THE AIR” are true. So, if it hadn’t been for all the darn murders- it could have been a real biography !

TRR:  Tell us more about “The Magic Is Inside You” and “Speed Painting”

EN:

I spend all my winters in Delray Beach, FL. The Women in The Visual Arts in Boca Raton has invited me to do a presentation I call : ” The Magic is Inside You !” I will give a lecture on my new e- book and then, I’ll paint ( acrylic) for half an hour. “Speed Painting” is showing different painting techniques. If you go to my website: EvaNewermann.com you can see a short film of me painting.
Among my hobbies are art, astronomy, bridge and dancing, but lately I have concentrated on writing.  I have published, in Norway, a book for young readers about the universe, illustrated with my own illuminative paintings of the cosmos.  This has led to book signings, lectures, and opportunities to educate students about the universe. I’m also currently writing a sequel to FEAR IS IN THE AIR.
Book Cover by Eva

Book Cover by Eva

 

Fear Is In The Air

 

Ewa Lowe, a strikingly beautiful flight attendant, is a sociopath, a serial killer.  She is charming, witty and deadly.  A world traveler who kills the night before leaving the country, she is so organized, so tidy, that she leaves no clue. Oh, she always has a good reason to kill.  At the age of ten, Ewa was raped and her parents murdered.  This triggered her hatred for brown-eyed men.  At 23, she killed her rapist. After that, her victims, in addition to offending her for one reason or another, have brown eyes.

Initiated by Lee Ann Lester, Fair Organizer and local gallery owners Rolando Barrero, Craig McInnis, and Freddy Hennevelt; “Art Synergy” is a coordinated five day event with over 60 galleries, studios, non-profit art exhibition institutions and museums in six art districts throughout Palm Beach County during the five day fair, Jan. 23-28th.
Rolando Barrero, Director of ActivistArtistA Gallery and Developer of Boynton Beach Arts District; “Since opening my gallery, in a run-down industrial park in 2012, my dream was to develop the area into an art district and cultural center.  It has taken only 2 years to do so. Now that it has been cleaned up, repainted, and nationally branded – it’s ready to be presented to the arts world. Lee Ann Lester is vital to this effort and it’s with much gratitude that I thank her for accepting our proposal to participate under Palm Beach’s flagship art exposition: ART PALM BEACH.”
Lee Ann Lester, Founder and Organizer of ArtPalmBeach, says,“Palm Beach County has a great legacy in supporting the arts and is home to many of Florida’s leading art and cultural institutions. Art Synergy will create a new bridge for winter residents and ArtPalmBeach visitors to explore this cultural legacy and create an annual destination to enjoy Palm Beach County Art Week events.”
The first evening of Art Synergy begins at ART al’ FRESCO at the Boynton Beach Art District, on January 24th 7pm – 1am. ART al’ FRESCO will feature “Sensabilities: Cheryl Maeder and Ali Mirandaat the ActivistArtistA Gallery, a walking tour of the Murals of the Bay Gates Projects, special performances and showcasing of work by local area artists.
Each art district will offer a weekend of scheduled gallery walks, symposiums, open studio visits, special exhibitions, poetry readings, architectural tours, film previews, and art performances.

The National League of American Pen Women was founded in 1897 to promote the development of creative women in the arts. The Boca Raton Branch is the largest branch in Florida, and one of the largest in the nation.

The Boca Raton branch has long been active in the community, routinely reaching out with writing programs and contests, as well as public art shows. They develop programs with longer and more involved goals. In 2004-2005, they developed an outreach initiative with the Gateways Book Program to aid those incarcerated in the Girls Juvenile Detention Center in West Palm Beach. The branch presents monthly workshops with the girls and collects books, which helped to establish a library at the center. Another outreach program was designed to help Palm Beach County teachers by offering members’ talents and expertise in the arts for use in the classroom. These outreach programs are important not only in serving the community, but because they help the organization maintain its not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) status.

 

 

 

The branch holds program luncheon meetings the 3rd Thursday of the month, from November through May, at the Delray Beach Golf Club. Creativity workshops and exhibitions are also held at various times throughout the year for members and the general public.

 

Different levels of membership are available. For more information, go to the local branch websitewww.bocapenwomen.org
