Wilma Langhamer at the Art House February ArtWalk 2009


Wilma Langhamer's artwork was featured on five READER'S DIGEST covers worldwide. The JAPANESE edition of Reader’s Digest featured her "Rose Balloon" on the cover with a half page article talking about her emerging success as an artist.
Living in south Germany, Wilma purchased her first set of oil colors at age 15. In 1974, she decided to make painting her career. Soon afterwards, her work was shown in exhibitions in Stuttgart and Munich, Germany . During this time, she met Carl Mohner, internationally-known movie star and artist who named her unique style "Romantic Realism" which is still true with her newest work.
Currently, Wilma Langhamer is living in McAllen, Texas, US and is working on a series of oil paintings to the themes of love and peace which she considers most important in life. She has worked with many charitable organizations in the past and will donate her talent again to raise funds for a good cause. Benefiting PRESIDENT CARTER'S humanitarian effort, the CARTER CENTER has auctioned 2003 and 2002 Langhamer originals considerable above the retail price.
