About Astrid

Coming from a creative writing background, I am captivated by art that tells stories. I want my work to make you want to touch it, laugh or cry with it, make your heart beat a little faster....I'm not cool enough to like art that eschews beauty. I like fluffy more than sleek, red wine more than white, and water more than mountains. I live in Chicago in the Pullman National Monument with my very hirsute cats and an enormous furry dog.

Special thanks to Heidi Haas, photographer extraordinaire, who photographed most of my sculpture.
