Esther M. Smith
|With the birth of her son in 1981, her fledging art career was put on hold for the next ten years.
In 1993 Esther was able to return to her favorite medium of pencil, and created a series entitled The Great Lovers of History and Literature, which proved instantly successful.
Esther admits that she struggled for years to discover her major purpose in life until she realized that using her special gift to bring pleasure to others through her art was her purpose and was a worthy and achievable goal.
In The Great Lovers and the newer Angle series, Esther uses her love of archeology and anthropology to research the culture surrounding each story ensuring that everything from clothing to hairstyles is accurate to the time period represented.
To make sure her collectors fully understand and appreciate their prints, she includes a brief summary of the story or history upon which each image is based. She likes the fact that her prints are educational, as well as being enjoyable to the soul.
