About Elaine Oehmich

Elaine Oehmich Originally from Northwest Indiana, Elaine J. Oehmich, M.F.A., is a nationally acclaimed painter of sound. Her visual sound paintings represent synesthetic visions of wind, music, and birdsong. The award winning video of the artist’s 2009 collaboration with premier birdsong recording artist, Geoffrey Keller, may be viewed at the following website: www.elaineoehmich.com. In April of 2013 Ms. Oehmich was inducted into the Crown Point High Alumni Association Hall of Fame for her accomplishments in the field of fine arts.

"Visual sound has been an integral part of my life since I can remember. Lying underneath the grand piano as a toddler while my mother played dramatic chords, colors and forms danced before my eyes. It wasn't until my late teens when I read an article entitled 'Synesthesia' in a Psychology Today magazine that I fully realized the special nature of this faculty. When one sensory perception is stimulated, such as hearing, another is activated as well, and in my case, it is sight. Having the faculty of chromosthesia, whereby vision is stimulated by sound, I see the wind as a moving, changing, tangible entity in space, laced with color, value, texture and line in a 3-dimensional form." -- from Visual Sound: The Breathing Wind, June 2003 Solo Exhibition, Nth Degree Gallery, Boone, NC.

A collaboration with The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra (2007), and later with the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra (2010), resulted in a series of paintings from Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, as featured on the artist’s website www.elaineoehmich.com.

Ms. Oehmich completed the Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University (1978) and the Master of Fine Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design (2001). She taught art at Appalachian State University from 2001-2005, as well as Jacksonville State College for one year. Ms. Oehmich currently resides in Northwest Indiana. She is currently seeking funding for her next project, Visual Sounds of Paris.
