Collector’s Choice: LuAnn Ostergaard


http://www.luannostergaard.com/contact.htm

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.   LuAnn Ostergaard

 

My images often transcend their original source and become elevated to striking compositions through subtle manipulation – by adding more of the original color captured in the image or creating more contrast to please the eye. I sometimes combine two or more images to create my compositions.

The process used to create my box mounted art prints begins with a digital image. The image is printed with archival pigment inks on cotton hot press fine art paper. The print is mounted on a custom made boxed panel and hand textured with clear acrylic gel medium for a UV protective finish.
