Inspiring Artist – LuAnn Ostergaard

I found the artist LuAnn Ostergaard on Pinterest. Here is an excerpt from her website “My creative spirit is awakened by the beauty I see in naturally occurring patterns and textures. I find beauty in imperfection and often see it in scarred and weathered surfaces.”

Everyone who knows me knows I love a good rusty object. She starts with an image of rusty surfaces that she then alters digitally. She prints the finished images with archival pigments on hot press fine art paper. The prints are mounted on boxed panels and sealed with clear acrylic gel medium.

I love the colors and textures. They look like paintings but the fact that they start as found objects makes them feel real and natural.  They look like landscapes which I also love.
