“Lady of the Trees” by Ariana Richards
Ariana Richards possessed a love of traditional art at an early age. An internationally noted actress, known especially for her role as “Lex” in “Jurassic Park,” she went on to Skidmore College to earn a B.S. Degree in Fine Art and Drama, and has since been mentored by some of the finest names in Contemporary Impressionist art.
Art has long been a tradition in her family. Her own genealogy can be traced back to the early Italian Renaissance with Carlo Crivelli, a contemporary of Boticelli. Ariana’s ongoing work shows the classical influence of the Old Masters, along with the dynamics of Impressionist artists. Her award-winning paintings have been exhibited internationally, and her work has been featured in the major art magazines, including the cover of American Artist.
At 27, Ariana works out of her studio in Oregon and is best known for her figure paintings and commissioned portraits. She is drawn to a life lived close to the natural landscape and often paints her subjects in an outdoor setting.
