Welcome! My name is Luana Krause. I live in the Wild West of Cheyenne, Wyoming with my adoring hubby.
My passion as an artist is to capture the paradox of life - the beauty and the ashes, the joy and the sorrow.
Magical and mysterious themes inspire me and I'm influenced by popular culture and nature. I mostly work in acrylic, but also mixed media.
Thanks for stopping by!
I paint portraits in the style of Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920). I admire the bold colors and elongated features.
The Dawn Treader
Painting an acrylic and mixed media painting of the "Dawn Treader," the glorious sailing ship from the third book in the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. I'm also doing a series of paintings featuring my favorite Narnia characters. Currently working on sketches for Reepicheep.
Proverbs in Pictures
I'm illustrating verses from the Book of Proverbs.
I worked with poet Dean K. Miller illustrating his book of Haiku. (2016)
