Redd Walitzki (United States) finds inspiration in the lush surroundings of her home in the Pacific Northwest and the ornate Baroque ornamentation of her native Bavaria. The vivid muses in her paintings are influenced by the glamour of high fashion, but Walitzki’s works also often explore the darker side of human impact on ecology. Her earliest memories are of painting at the kitchen table with her grandfather, pulling flowers and foxes out of the bright splashes of pigment. This initial passion led her to pursue a career as an artist, and Walitzki completed her B.F.A. from Cornish College of the Arts with a concentration in painting. Walitzki’s work has been featured in galleries on both coasts of the U.S. and in Australia as well as in Hi-Fructose and Juxtapoz.
