Gail Niebrugge's Alaska Wildflowers: An Artist's Journey in Paintings and Prose

Gail Niebrugge's Alaska Wildflowers: An Artist's Journey in Paintings and Prose Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1976, Gail Niebrugge and her husband, Bob, quit their jobs in San Diego and moved with their two children to Copper Center, Alaska, population 300. Gail's dream of painting wilderness landscapes had come true. For twenty years, Gail painted sweeping lanscapes, even learning to fly to get aerial perspectives of mountains and glaciers. Then, while standing in a meadow one day visualizing a landscape painting, she looked down and, for the first time, considered the flowers as subjects. Thus began her fascination with wildflowers. Her transition from flowers as colored dots to vivid, detailed close-up required research and travel. What was the name of each flower? Where and when was it found? Gail's search for wildflower subjects brought with it often humorous, sometimes risky, and always-unusual adventures.

Synopsis:

Gail hasn't forsaken mountains and roadhouses, favorite subjects of earlier work, but mostly she paints flowers now — stunningly beautiful, delicate, and brilliantly colorful flowers that she travels many miles to find. This gorgeous volume chronicles her journey both personally and professionally.

Synopsis:

Hike through the forget-me-nots, fireweed, and yellow oxytrope with pointillist Gail Niebrugge, who is living her life's dream of painting in the wilderness. Already a successful landscape artist, Niebrugge widened her focus to include the "little things" in the Alaska landscape - native flowers so fragile and breathtakingly beautiful. Alaska Wildflowers offers more than seventy beautiful paintings with stories about her exploration by land, air, and water of all corners of her adopted state.

Synopsis:

After years of painting landscapes, Gail Niebrugge began painting flowers — stunningly beautiful, delicate, and brilliantly colorful. This volume chronicles her journey from the majestic to the minuscule.

About the Author

Twenty-five years ago, Gail Niebrugge was drawing cartoons for war manuals as an illustrator for the U.S. Marines. This was not the career she had in mind for herself. With the support of a loving family, she moved to remote Glennallen, Alaska, where she began pushing her art in a new and exciting direction. Niebrugge, a pointillist, has received numerous honors and has served as artist-in-residence for the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Currently she and her family live in Palmer, Alaska.
