Biography from Lee Youngman Galleries:
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, with distinction. She continued with instruction at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and has been mentored by some of the finest names in Contemporary Imapressionist art.

Art has long been a tradition in her family. Her own genealogy can be traced back to the early Italian Renaissance with Carlo Crevelli, a contemporary of Botticelli. The tradition has been passed along through the generations to Ariana through her Italian grandmother, who was a professional oil painter. Ariana's ongoing work shows the classical influence of the Old Masters, along with the dynamics of Impressionist artists, most notably Monet, Guy Rose, and John Twachtman. She also draws inspirtation from Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, ad J.W. Waterhouse.

A strong advocate for the environment, Richards believes that art can deepen our relationship with the natural world. "If I could, I would take each viewer along to my favorite places along the seacoast or in the mountains, to the secret places of nature." Ariana speaks of her figurative work saying, "I especially enjoy painting figures out of doors because of the beautiful, transient effects of sunlight on the subject."

At age 24, Ariana is an award-winner plein-air painter and winner of juried competitions in California. She is also becoming known for her portraits and figures in landscape. Ariana's paintings have been exhibited internationally.

Her publications include southwest Art Magazine in "21 Under 31" 2002. Her work was featured on the cover of American Artist Magazine, April 2003 and in the lead story, as well as a full feature article in the September 2003 issue of Southwest Art magazine. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America and is a Mentor Member of the California Art Club.
