Galen Dara: 2014 Hugo Nominated Artist Spotlight

Galen Dara is a 2013 Hugo Award Winner for Best Fan Artist. This year she is nominated for Best Professional Artist. Suffice it to say that she is making her mark. 

As the Hugo Award season is in full swing, I want to highlight the nominated artists.

The final image is actually from 2014, but is so stunning I can't help but include it. The rest of the art is from 2013 and forms the basis of why Galen Dara was nominated for the Hugo Award. There is a haunting quality to her work. 

I had not been previously familiar with Dara's work, but in reviewing it for this post, I have been put on notice. I love what she does and the textures that she uses to create the art. Stunning. Just stunning.
