Ober-Rae Starr Livingstone is a self-taught artist who finds his inspiration in the beauty of nature. As a young man he worked on ships, hitchhiked, and rode buses and trains in order to travel around the world. Much of what he experienced visually and emotionally makes its way into his paintings. He has been painting for over 40 years and supporting himself through his art for the last 15 years.
Ober-Rae’s early work was largely abstract and it became more representational as the years went by and his desire to reflect the beauty he finds in nature became his passion. He has won several awards, and will be featured on the cover of the March issue of the The Artist Magazine and will have a featured article on his work published in the upcoming summer issue of the Acrylic Artist magazine.
