Marilynn Flynn is a professional astronomical artist who merges her artistic talents with a lifelong passion for space exploration. Her space art is a blend of science fact and intelligent imagination. She was on the NASA Fine Arts Program team for the tragic Challenger 51-L mission and her painting “Cosmic Cauldron” orbited Earth on the Mir Space Station as part of “Ars Ad Astra”, the first group art exhibit in space. One of her sketches landed on the surface of Titan on a disk affixed to ESA’s Huygens lander. Marilynn has traveled and lived all over the world, visiting strange landscapes that inspire her realistic paintings of other planetary surfaces. She obtained a private pilot’s license in 1985 and is a fellow and a founding member of the I.A.A.A.
