Ardith Starostka

(American b.1962)



     Portraits and figurative paintings are a work of passion for artist Ardith Starostka.  Beginning at the age of twelve, Ardith has had the desire to create works of art that capture the likeness of the human face and form.  Basically self taught, Ardith found her inspiration in museums through the works of 19th century French academic painter William Adolphe Bouguereau and Dutch artist Rembrandt.  Ardith is a graduate of the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and an Associates degree in Art.   Ardith has continued her education in fine art by attending workshops with distinguished artists, Nelson Shanks, Daniel Greene and Richard Whitney.


     With skilled craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail, Ardith portrays her subjects in a extraordinary realistic style with primarily oils, but also paints in pastel and watercolor.  Ardith was chosen from over 30,000 artists to create a piece for a special meeting at the White House in 1995.  With her building success in painting portraits, she stepped into the art world full time in 2000.  That year she won top honors at the Portrait Society of America International Portrait Competition.  In 2001 she was named ‘A rising star in the firmament of American Portraiture” by The Artist Magazine and won First Place & People’s Choice Award at Ernestine Quick Memorial Competition.  


     In the years of 2002 through 2011, Ardith has continued to win major awards at the annual competition of the Portrait Society of America International Portrait competitions, American Mothers Association , Ernestine Quick Memorial Competition, Art Renewel Center International Juried Salon, National Arts for the Parks Competition, Salon International at International Museum of Contemporary Masters of Fine Art, Paint America National Competition, among others.


     In 2009, Ardith was selected for Signature Membership in the prestigious organization International Guild of Realism and also was awarded Master Signature membership in the American Women Artists.  She is a member of Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of America, American Society of Traditional Artists, Master Signature Member of Mid America Pastel Society, and Master Signature Member of Pastel Society of America.


     Her paintings are included in collections at: the Blair House and the White House, Washington, D.C.; the Wright Brothers Museum, Nagshead, North Carolina; Cessna Aircraft, Inc.; the Decorative Arts Collection Museum, Wichita, Kansas; Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska; and many private collections across the U.S.
