Artist Biography

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota.  After attending college in Colorado, she stayed and never looked back.  Working and traveling opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries.  She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Today, Maureen’s time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.

Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country.  Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

Maureen’s goal is to continually look for new ways to challenge herself and express what she feels. That is what inspires her to never reject possibilities in subject matter.

Artist Statement

My techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My greatest reward comes from developing composites. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between passionately abstract and doggedly figurative.

Going on an Adventure: In the Mountains

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure.”― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again

Words that could never be truer, life is an adventure. While I am always sharing my adventure with the same person, our destination is never the same as we travel the United States. Going to State Parks, National Forest, and National Parks. Capturing images from the highest points to the lowest of valleys. These moments are more the memories of a trip here and there, they are moments of these amazing places that people may have forgotten about or that people fail to see at the right time.

The photography process is two-fold, creating images with a vision in my head of what it will look like. Shooting several images at various locations and capturing different details to make sure the moment, light, and shadows are all where I want them. After processing them in the digital darkroom, finishing touches are made and comes the images that are produced.

I seek the natural wonders of the world, taking me to mountains, rivers, and waterfalls from all around. I want people to see the beauty and moment that I capture for everyone. From the lonely flower to the largest mountain peak.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Laurie Snow Hein has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Laurie is an award-winning artist based in Florida, USA. Laurie was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 16th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Laurie’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Laurie’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Laurie Snow Hein has been painting since first grade when she first picked up a paintbrush and watched the bright paint colors dripping down the paper. It was love at first stroke. Her parents had convinced her that is was impossible to make a career as an artist; but, it was in her DNA. Both parents, brother, grandmother were multi-talented in the arts. At age twelve she started studying with Graham Ingels, a retired illustrator, famous for “Tales From the Crypt.” Her high school teacher encouraged her to apply for a scholarship which that she received from Columbus College of Art and Design. She decided to major in Industrial design to be practical. At the end of her first year, Laurie was the first freshmen at CCAD to be awarded the Katherine M. Tuttle Scholarship.

After college, she married considering art as a pass time. Six children later at age 40, she was suddenly in need of supporting her family by herself. Her strength was the arts, portrait painting primarily, so she immediately started advertising to paint portraits. Her garage was converted to a teaching studio. She took a job instructing art in all mediums, teaching at two local country clubs. When her paintings of children and animals were noticed by a national publisher, her career in art licensing and reproductions was launched. God blessed her and provided the opportunities and ability to support her family with artistic talent. Had it not been for the necessity of using her artistic abilities she would have never grown to be the artist she is today.

Working 30 years as a professional artist, teacher, licensed artist, illustrator, showing at art festival circuits, Laurie now shows primarily in Florida. Her subject is concentrated on local landscapes, beaches, botanicals, wildlife. The beauty and variety of God’s creation is all the inspiration needed when exploring the amazing world there is to enjoy. Large paintings making you feel in the moment are her forte. Although very realistic, her brushstrokes are bold, rich with colors, transparent glazing, textures, and energetic. You feel like you could almost step into the painting. The pace was so fast and demanding for many years that there wasn’t time to consider entering competitions for awards. Now at 70 plus there is a focus to share her art more with her peers and enter competitions creating greater value for her many collectors.

Traveling is a passion, while she searches out the heart of locations to paint. In 2019 Laurie traveled across the US on a 90-day trip starting a new collection of artwork representing our National Parks. Contact her directly from her website for originals and commissions or custom made giclee reproductions. Follow her art and videos on Instagram and Facebook and collections on Pinterest.

Artist Statement

The mystique and natural beauty of Florida are the elements that inspire me to bring a canvas to life by capturing a special time of day that is magical. Painting the raw splendor and energy of Florida’s natural environment allows me as an artist to introduce the observer of my artwork to the wonderment I feel when observing God’s craftsmanship. By creating a painting of clouds, ocean, landscape, or birds unique to Florida on canvas, I can bring to life the light and inspiration that makes my work and spirit come alive with beauty, color, emotion. This passion is driven by the desire to create realistic expressions depicting the divine majesty of God’s creations often found only a short drive civilization. It is in quiet places and natural environments, away from crowds, traffic, buildings, that we find peace and inspiration in nature to restore our energy and soul. I paint this tropical paradise to bring it back home for others to savor and enjoy.
