‘Night skies and fireflies’ exhibit now on display

June 15, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Kathleen Eaton’s fascination with the Michigan night sky began as a young child.

From northern lights and twinkling fireflies, to flashes of lightning and nocturnal creatures that stealthily creep through the foliage, her work evokes childhood memories. This wellspring of beauty and mystery is captivating and enthralling, and she illustrates it with thick, textural oil paint.

Eaton’s inspiration is drawn from 30 years of living in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. She now shares her time between Michigan and Arizona, where she is enjoying the new and abundant beauty of the desert skies.

Check out her work at Michigan Medicine:
