About

Artist Biography

LuAnn Ostergaard is an award winning artist and photographer who works with photo-based digital imaging as her primary medium.

 

LuAnn’s work crosses the lines between photography and painting and she displays knowledge of painterly composition and color theory. She considers herself a ‘painter of light’, using captured light photons rather than paint pigments to create her work, which are many times mistaken for ‘paintings’. She works from the heart to create images that are poetic and evocative, and her mysterious and magical images go beyond reality or surrealism. She has created a wonderful new artful world of her own.

 

She is most interested in rusty, oxidized metal and other weathered surfaces as subjects of her photos. She sometimes combines more than one image to create stunning landscapes images and interesting abstract compositions. "Very few would see the potential of a shot as you see it and the fact that you do, singles you out as far more than an ordinary photographer: UK Ranger states. 

 

She prints her work in the studio using archival pigment inks on fine art cotton fiber paper. The prints are mounted to custom made cradle back frames and print surfaces are hand textured with clear acrylic medium for beautiful and UV protective finish.

 

Her life’s work is dedicated to inspiring creative interaction with world around us and seeing beauty in all things.

 

Her work hangs in many corporate environments and fine homes across the U.S and beyond.

 

LuAnn Ostergaard is a full time artist and lives and works in Kennewick, WA.
