Helen Moravsky took honors in Visual Media and graduated from American University in Washington, D.C., in 1977. She currently lives in Winchester, VA. She writes, "The base images [of my art} are culled from my vast and constantly growing collection of 19th and early 20th century photographs... The classical nature of the pieces comes from my love of classical architecture and the old photographs I collect. I look for photos that are specifically architectural in nature, not people shots... As far as influences go - they are diverse... Artistically, I would say the German Expressionists, Dadaists, Surrealists and Cubists are my primary influences... What I create has elements of all of these, particularly the more you look at the work. Almost all of [my art] contains visual surprises that you may not note in the initial viewing but see when you take a closer look."
