About The Artist 

Storm Ritter is a New York City based fine artist, ambidextrous painter, garment designer, and business owner of Storm Ritter, Inc. She has cultivated her own style of surrealist fine art, specializing in fine art paintings, murals, custom apparel, and artist merchandise.

Her intent as a painter and human is to visualize the magical worlds of her soul; furthermore, to transfer her nostalgia stylistically onto canvas. Storm's evolving body of work is focused on emotional storytelling through the use of her specific color palette (dictated by music) and organically-created esoteric imagery. Personal enlightenment and ethereal escapism for the artist and the viewer is the mission. 

After graduating from NYU, her career launched in 2015 when she opened her first retail storefront, Storm Ritter Studio, featuring original fashion & studio art. Since 2022, Storm has run two Storm Ritter Galleries in Meatpacking located at 807 Washington Street and 38 Little West 12th Street, NYC
