United States
I am living a life of passion for science, beauty, and the cosmos.
My artwork is here to inspire you about this awesome universe we live in and to think rationally and humbly about our position on this floating speck of solar driftwood.
I am a freethinker. The people I respect and admire most are Carl Sagan, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Denett, and of course his majesty, Christopher Hitchens.

I am an active member of Houston Oasis, a secular community where humanists from all over the city gather weekly.

Tutorial Coming Soon
Hello fans, soon I will release a tutorial based on my latest painting Endurance.
So grab your tablets and prepare to expand those big tasty brains.

Here is a few progress shots of the painting building up. 
There will also be a timelapse video of me painting, with some amazing soundtrack played over the top too.

Endurance by cosmicspark
Endurance
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

"The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding.  Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home.  In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty.  And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise."  - Carl Sagan

I recorded a video of most of my work on this piece.  It will be made available in the coming weeks as a tutorial.

Thanks for viewing.  The purpose of my artwork is to inspire people about science and astronomy, and to incite them to learn about our universe and its grand beauty.  Prints are available for this piece.  See the right toolbar for the different types of prints.

Your gallery and every single piece of space art is
simple remarkable, breathtaking, mesmerizing  and
outstanding.:D (Big Grin)
You are very talented, my friend, and the way you creating
your space images is so unique and incredibly. :) (Smile)
I've been in love with galaxies, constellations, solar systems,
planets and everything that's gotta do with the universe
ever since I was a little girl. And your artwork simple states why.
 Love
Keep up the good work and never stop giving us such wonderfull
images of universe's endless beauty.
