Rajnus was an artist before learning to fly in the 1970’s, and credits her training in science, biology, and art as the foundation for current work. With family history that includes engineering at Lockheed during WWII, aviation has been a foundation as well. Flying experiences with her husband in Canada and Alaska led to interest in using those places as locations for paintings. These are created in oil or watercolor for galleries, exhibitions, commissions, and illustrations. Her recent book “Stars of the Sky” with Ann Cooper as author, includes Rajnus’ illustrations of 50 Women in Aviation through the ages, and their craft. Work can be seen in many collections, including EAA, National Museum of Naval Aviation, NOAA, and the National Park Service.
