Myrna Bloom studied fine art at Tyler School of Art and aesthetics at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. She began experimenting with op-art and naturalistic compositions that emphasized color relationships, the forms of domestic objects and smoothly painted surfaces. In later years, Bloom also created abstract sculptures with expressive movement. She has exhibited in a wide variety of solo and group exhibitions both regionally and nationally, and Bloom’s work has been purchased by Temple University and the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts, as well as several corporate and private collections.
