THE "CELESTIAL STRUCTURES" SERIES

This collection of paintings has been in the works for several months, although my love for architecture and old buildings has been present for most of my life. I've lived out this passion over the last decade by renovating two "fixer-uppers" and letting the processes involved influence my artistic work. These experiences have taught me the importance of  persistence, and the value in reintegrating beauty into neglected living spaces. Within these works, I pair hand-painted homes and backgrounds with vintage celestial and topographical maps as a hopeful homage to structures that have stood the test of time. Many of the homes and barns within my paintings are a result of local inspiration (Minnesota farmland) and long road trips across the United States and Canada. My greatest influence for this series is the thoughtful writing and real estate curation of Elizabeth from CIRCA Homes and "Cheap Old Houses" - both are captivating and well worth your time! Thank you for your time and support - I hope you enjoy viewing this collection, because I adored bringing this idea to life!
