Hello I’m Harry Dusenberg
Self taught artist born in 1943 and raised in the Philadelphia area.

Harry Dusenberg became interested in art by watching Bill Alexander create beautiful landscapes and seascapes in the 1980’s on PBS television after watching for a few months, I said to myself maybe I can do that so off to the art store I went.

I bought all the stuff needed to paint including a can of turpentine with this on the label "it has a distinct odor " I remember sitting in the living room trying to paint my first painting the smell stayed in the house for about a week and my painting looked like gray and white pyramids and green smudges not only was my painting a mess but my wife was hopping mad over the smell.

Well being a persistent person I moved my painting stuff downstairs and painted about 3 paintings a day for six months and finally got pretty good at it. I sent a tape to Alexander Art and they made me a Bill Alexander Certified Instructor, this was in 1988. Shortly thereafter I was teaching seminars, demonstrating the Wet on Wet technique in malls, resorts and private homes throughout Delaware County.

I have received letters from my former students that say they have gone on to win juried art shows and it gives me a great feeling of satisfaction to know that I have made a difference in their lives the same way that Bill Alexander has made a difference in mine.

I’m retired now and now do all my art painting in the digital medium with Corel Painter
I’m glad you have taken the time to view my work I hope you have enjoyed the paintings as much as I have enjoyed creating them for you….
