ABOUT THE ARTIST
Astrid Preston emigrated from Stockholm, Sweden in 1952 and currently lives and works in Santa Monica, California. Her career as a landscape painter has spanned three decades beginning with her first solo exhibit in 1975 at Gallery 707 in Los Angeles. Her work is intimately tied both to the natural environment of Southern California that surrounds her, and the magical realm of her imagination within.

Preston has been featured in exhibitions in California, North Dakota, Montana, Texas, and Michigan. Her paintings are in the collections of the Oakland Museum, Oakland, California; The McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas; Kaufman and Broad, Paris, France; and Forest Inn Showakan, Tokyo, Japan, among many others.
