Bernice Harwood

Bernice Baumel Harwood, an artist since childhood, studied art in high school, and then attended The McDowel School of Art in NYC and became a fashion illustrator. In 1944 Bernice entered the U.S. Navy as a WAVE, she was in the Hospital Corps and was trained as an Acrylic Eye Illustrator at Bethesda Naval Hospital MD. There were eight illustrators stationed around the country. She was stationed at San Diego Naval Hospital, CA., where she matched the existing eye for the men that lost their eyes in battle by painting the iris in watercolor. She worked with a dentist, a Commander who was involved in the total process. This allowed the men to have an eye that looked quite natural.

Bernice tells The Rickie Report, ” As a painter, I turned to multiples within the graphic medium. I found the challenge of the surprise, working with the existing results exhilarating. It is exciting to work with various techniques in etching to achieve the impression and mood I wish to evoke. These works are primarily representational. Then I found the Monoprint, with its spontaneity, use of textures and vibrant color and more abstract forms. I have incorporated some of the feeling of my Monoprint in my etchings. I am now working with watercolors, and using some of the same feelings and techniques that I used in printmaking”.
