Born and raised in Chicago during the 1940’s, graphic artist Diedre Luzwick is both a visionary philosopher and social critic, focusing her haunting imagery upon the most modern aspects – and ancient roots – of western civilization.  Largely self-taught, Luzwick perfected her individualistic ‘prose art’ technique to draw exclusively – as a profession – for thirty years. The artist presently lives in the small rural Wisconsin town of Cambridge, whose folk have often been models for the distinctive characters in her portraits. Highly detailed surrealistic images of vision and power define Luzwick’s style in the medium of black and white charcoal on an 18 x 24 canvas format. The artist’s zeal for biblical scholarship was fueled while attending Ripon College as a philosophy major. 

Luzwick’s first book, The Surrealist’s Bible, published by Jonathan David in 1976, was a collection of sixty drawings interpreting the Old Testament’s major books with a contemporary focus. Ms. Luzwick’s sequel to the Surrealist Bible, Christ-Kin: The Nuclear Bible, propelled the gospels into our space age era.  

Harper Collins published Luzwick’s second book, Endangered Species in 1992. The provocative images in Endangered Species delineate the social, scientific and ecological threats to the survival of humanity in modern times.  

Ms. Luzwick's third published book was The Catcher of the Wise, Poetic Interpretatons of the Hebrew Scriptures and Old TestamentCatcher of the Wise, published in 2006 by King House Publishers, contains Ms. Luzwick's poetic interpretations of the lead characters and main stories in the Old Testament, from the creation to King Solomon.
