Petra Johnita Lommen’s art explores a personal creative feminine energy through archetypal themes referencing: the celestial beauty of the night sky; the visual poetry of women’s vintage costume design; musical composition influencing visual composition/visual composition evoking musical composition; observations of nature as essential inquiry; and her love for the scientific disciplines of astronomy, cosmology, paleontology, and geology.
