Randy Ottenberg Parenti
About the Artist

Randy Ottenberg Parenti is a uniquely original contemporary American artist.   She has a truly unique style - developed over 30 years - and uses a plethora of materials to express her vision of familiar subjects. Her goal is to transport the viewer into another dimension. She is influenced by the American landscape - from the deserts of the southwest to semi-tropical Florida to her beloved New Jersey shore. Randy conveys intensely personal, intuitive, dream-like images with just about anything she can attach to a canvas to produce a rich palate of color and texture that make for a sensual viewing experience. She is in a category of her own.


Randy has worked for George Lucas's Industrial Light & Magic for 25 years. She is a traditional modelmaker and has worked on over 50 major motion pictures and over 100 commercials. Her work on special effects movies at the ILM model shop has exposed Randy to a wide range of materials that she incorporates into her own artwork.

Her movie career spans decades, starting with E. T. - The Extra-Terrestrial, the Star Wars episodes and the Indiana Jones series, and more recently War of the Worlds, Pirates of the Caribbean and Mission Impossible 3. (Click Here to see a partial list of credits on the International Movie Database.)

Randy has had numerous one woman and group shows. (Click Here for a partial list of shows.) Her work is also in many private collections across the United States.

Randy was educated at Philadelphia High School for Girls and Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. She then went to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and completed her studies at the San Francisco Art Institute. She has Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Fine Arts.

Randy lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area where she continues her film work and her own fine arts career. She is extremely prolific and is currently working on a series of paintings about Asbury Park, N.J. Randy summers at the Jersey shore, which continues to be a source of inspiration for her.

Whether you own one of her paintings or a piece of her furniture, you will always find pleasure in viewing this truly one of a kind artwork.
