Wilma's Bio:

Wilma Bulkin Siegel, M.D., graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1958 and received her
medical degree in 1962 at Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania.  She has had a distinguished career
as a prominent oncologist in New York City. In her career she was a pioneer establishing one of the first Hospices in the state of New York and one of the first to accept AIDS patients. In the capacity of Medical Director of that Hospice, she was asked to give her expertise on AIDS to the Presidential Commission in Washington.
Following her retirement, she combined medicine with her other childhood career target, painting, by attending The National Academy of Design.  She has become an award-winning artist recognized
nationally for her series of people living with AIDS, Survivors of AIDS, The Changing Faces of AIDS
(Seniors), Breast Cancer Survivors, The Homeless, and the Elderly. Dr. Siegel has exhibited throughout
the country, particularly in connection with events involved with AIDS and Cancer. She has been
featured on CNN television for her AIDS series and she has been elected into Who’s Who in American
Art 2001. In the year 2005, April – October, she was featured in a one woman exhibition “Holocaust
Survivors and Liberators” at The Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has shown at Whitespace Collection West Palm Beach, Florida. Her current passion is to bring art into the medical field as an educational tool and a forum for healing. In this new field of art in medicine she has been instrumental
in creating a program at U of Miami in Florida and Columbia Medical Center in NY City to bring artists
to work with patients and also to teach medical students to see in a different way. She is a member
of the Advisory Council of Columbia Medical Center, New York City and the School of Nursing, Drexel
University, Philadelphia. In 2006 she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters and was commencement speaker at Drexel University.
In April 2009 she was awarded the highest honor for contribution to the field of arts in Healthcare,
Janice Palmer Award of Society of Arts in Healthcare.

Artist's Statement:

I knew that I liked people and wanted to express the knowledge I had acquired about people as a
physician. I came upon portraiture as a means of expressing the psychology of the person I was
painting.  I developed my style rather early in my development as an artist. My past experience in sculpture was certainly an advantage, as was my knowledge of anatomy. The outcome is affected by line and atmosphere of the individual, vibrant colors and Florida with its warmth and free spirit.  Color to me means “Fire of Life”. Recently I have delved into photography but wish again to express a psychological and emotional expression. Here I believe black and white is best for the expression of the person since it is not so
literal. Currently my focus in art has been to bring Art-in-Medicine programs into the mainstream.
I have been responsible for starting a medical school course to bring artists and medical students
together to help the student have better visual acuity. I have a passion to start “Artists-in-residency” programs in the de-humanized medical settings to help in healing. I have made a motto for myself
in art, which I call the three C’s-Communication, Compassion, and Creativity.
