"I was born in Vienna, Austria in 1929.  In 1938, my parents, brother and I found refuge in Panama when we escaped from the Nazi Regime.  In 1947 I traveled to Chicago to study at the American Academy of Art and at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1948 I met and married Eric Pagremanski,  and they changed our name to Page when we became American citizens. I, however retained the signature of H. Pagremanski in all my artwork.

We moved to New York where I studied at the Art Student's League with the renowned artist Isaac Soyer. I gave art lessons, lectured to art groups, and volunteered as an art teacher in prisons. My art work is in numerous private and public collections in the U.S.A. and abroad."
