Artist's Statement Artist's Portrait
I came to
the USA from Germany in 1958.
studied music at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, majoring in
composition. I was drafted into the US Army right before my senior year.
Circumstances changed and I decided to study art at the Maryland Institute
College of Art, from where I graduated in 1961.
In the middle 80’s I decided to get, and got, my masters from Towson University.
I have taught at Morgan State University, Catonsville Community, Essex Community and Towson University.
I also lead my own Big Band for which I write and arrange all the music. http://www.ballroommusic.com/myballroombigbandandsextet.html
I was awarded the professional Gold Medal from the Arthur Murray School of Dancing, where I taught dancing to earn my conservatory tuition.
I am also a professional Astrologer, certified by the American Federation of Astrologers. http://astrologyfrontiers.com/
I have written and published three books:
-My God, here there, everywhere (spiritual)
-The Force is with You (How to create for yourself a good and happy life)
-Declinations and the Vertical Zodiac (Astrology specific) http://www.lulu.com/us/en/shop/helmut-licht/the-force-is-with-you/ebook/product-18607370.html
For the past 18 years I have been holding ‘Wednesday Night Ballroom Dancing’, where I teach ballroom dancing and then play music to dance to.
I lead a 15 piece big band for which I arrange and write most of the music.
A few years back I converted my two-door garage into an atelier/gallery, where I do all my painting. Because there is no heat in my studio I decided to try digital art to get me through the winter. I love it!
