It is with great passion that artist, Ardith Starostka, has a desire to create works of art that capture the likeness and emotion of the human face and form. Primarily working in oils, many of Ardith’s current paintings combine the realistic figure with a touch of surrealism to add another dimension to her work.
The artist has exhibited and won awards in an extensive list of international as well as national competitions which include; the Art Renewal Center International Juried Show, the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait & Figurative Competition, the International Guild of Realism Juried Competition and the National Arts for The Parks Juried Competition, Oil Painters of America International Annual Exhibition, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society National Exhibition and the Nebraska Biennial. The artist has also been more recently featured in publications such as the International Artist magazine, Epoch Times, American Art Collector magazine, Southwest Art magazine, Plein Air magazine, Omaha Magazine and the Art & Freedom publication sponsored by the MEAM museum in Barcelona, Spain.
Ardith has produced paintings that now grace the walls of collectors, corporations and museums across the United States.
