Curator: H.M. Saffer
Originally from Philadelphia, Pa., H.M. now resides in Columbia County. He has been recognized for his work in music, the culinary arts and fine art and has studied art in the U.S., France and Japan. It was in Japan, where he continued his study of brush painting, that he started applying his Western Style of painting to the Sumi-e techniques he was learning.

After his return to the US, his style of painting shifted from exclusively works on paper to include oils and he began melding the Oriental influences with his Western style. H.M.’s current work reflects this mélange.

H.M. has instructed at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, Berkshire Community College, Columbia-Greene Community College, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), Art School of Columbia County (ASCC). He currently has gallery representation both in the United States and abroad. To see works by H.M. Saffer visit
