Melody Zahn Russell
In 1965 on the way to college my father announced, “By the way I’m not paying for you to become an artist. You need to have a practical job to support yourself.”
I became a teacher, with a Masters in Early Childhood Education.
Only later, when I realized that Art is healing did I allow myself the choice to call myself an artist.
From high school on I loved watercolor, poetry, theater, literature, creativity itself!
I studied more in England for three years at an international Waldorf college—Emerson in Sussex.
This was my re-birth!
Sculpture, Eurythmy! More painting and poetry!
Next five years Eurythmy training in New York.
Total immersion in art.
I felt blessed.
There I met my husband, and in the next couple of years Motherhood.
I metamorphosed all of my esoteric “Art” into the humble MRS RUSSELL’S POTATOES (Potato Print Greeting Cards) and EGGSHELL STUDIOS “Hatch Out the Artist in You!”
I have discovered that teaching is my real art, because the creative process itself is my true love.
I believe the world needs active artists of every sort to be healthy and true!
