1. Remember Ariana Richards, who played “Lex” in Jurassic Park?
2. Today she is an award-winning artist whose incredible paintings can be seen on her official website.
Ariana creates contemporary impressionist art, and can trace her genealogy back to the early Italian Renaissance with Carlo Crivelli, a contemporary of Botticelli.
6. But one of her coolest paintings is one she completed shortly after wrapping Jurassic Park when she was just 15.
You can buy a signed, limited edition lithograph of the painting here.
7. Nice work, Ariana! We’re pretty impressed too!
