From peaceful rural homesteads, to starry desert nights, to cozy corners in lushly appointed homes, the moody illustrations of Becca Stadtlander have a quiet serenity about them despite, or perhaps because of, her bold, rich color palette. No setting or scene is too mundane for the artist to capture, and she masterfully sprinkles her work with telling details that bring each moment in time to life: a wisp of smoke snaking out of a farmhouse chimney, a bit of cracked eggshell strewn haphazardly on a breakfast table, a storm-tossed ship captain beckoning for help on an angry sea. Whether depicting a dark and dreary landscape or a hygge-filled home, Becca creates mini worlds of intense depth, fullness, and vitality.
