Neva Bergemann grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Upon completing a study of studio arts and art history under the tutelage of David Feinberg, Diane Katsiaficas, and Joyce Lyon at the University of Minnesota, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree. Neva then went on to achieve her Masters in art education, graduating with honors. She remained in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where for many years she taught art in the public school system, working with students from the ages of six to eighteen.
In 1997, Neva traveled to Greece to attend the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts on the island of Paros where she studied under Jane Morris Pack. After settling permanently in Greece she set up her own art studio and created Artists on the Move, a program combining the visual arts — working with a variety of media, both en plein air and in the studio — with an exploration of the rich traditions to be found expressed in the architecture, landscape, and cultural life of the island of Paros.
In 2010, she joined the faculty of the Hellenic International Studies in the Arts (HISA), a study abroad institution with accredited courses for American universities, where she became lead instructor for the department of visual arts. She continues to evolve this multifaceted program today.
Neva Bergemann has been noted for creating art of a classical standard —figure painting, still life, landscape, portrait — but through a modern lens and with a contemporary approach. While influenced by the traditional techniques of the Dutch Masters, her work has also been informed by the minimalist tendencies of Giorgio Morandi as well as the atmospheric and sensually driven paintings produced by Greek artists such as Giorgos Rorris and Panayotis Tetsis.
Neva’s artwork has been exhibited internationally and resides in numerous private collections all over the world.
