I have always loved astronomy and been inspired by both astronomy and science fiction in my artwork at various times in my career. I am particularly inspired by the search for exo planets, or earth-like planets, and that is what his painting is about for me. Space isn't empty at all, it's full of things like nebulas and stars, and potentially life on other worlds. this painting has a lot of depth and you can see a lot in it that maybe isn't even really there. It is Acrylic on Canvas, not framed.
Long ago in a galaxy far away, I was a talented child drawer, and that morphed into a love of painting. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I am now doing an ongoing abstract series based on astronomy, a long-time love of mine. I am originally from Minnesota. I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because for me, that's when the magic happens.
