Product Description

Artist: Ami and Damion Verhalen

Artist Profile: Dark Star Art is a collection of acrylic pour artwork created by our family here in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. We are inspired by colors, nature, and motion. We create art, most often on canvas, using and experimenting with various acrylic techniques. You can find our artwork at or follow darkstarart.sp on Instagram.

This style of art allows our family to bring to life the colors and effects we experience in everyday moments that inspire us and share them with others. Acrylic pouring art reflects the unique balance of our combined interests in art and science. Damion works for the City of Sun Prairie, Ami is the VP of Design & Principle at Delve, a product design and innovation firm in Madison, and Kira, our daughter, is a student at UW Oshkosh pursuing nursing.

We are big believers in education and inspiration, and children’s museums have played a special role in bringing that to our lives over the years. The children’s museums we visited while we were dating, the ones we took our daughter to when she was small, and those we’ve traveled to as she grew, have all been meaningful experiences for us together. While each of us took away different elements of education and inspiration, these experiences also left us with lasting memories. Sun Prairie’s businesses, neighborhoods, families and schools have grown, and the EXPLORE Children’s Museum is a unique opportunity to bring wholesome experiences for families and kids to spend their time together rather than needing to go to Madison for them. We are excited to have a local space where we can learn together and be inspired by the world and each other.

Sun Prairie is our home and has been for over 20 years. We’ve raised our daughter here as she’s made her way through the schools and Damion works for the City of Sun Prairie. Through these connections and frequenting our local favorites (restaurants, shops, events, farmer’s market). We’ve been actively and intimately involved in the good times, and the hard times (#sunprairiestrong) and have a vested interest in laying the path for Sun Prairie’s tomorrow.

Art is an expression of our lives and the world we live in. It is a means of communicating with and inspiring each other. Art enables us all, young and old, to use different parts of our brain and practice creative skills, allowing us to think about things in different ways, express ourselves, and serve as a catalyst to creative and empathetic approaches to solving problems and living our lives together.
