Theres no better way to start off a new a year than with some art and it gives lentils great pleasure to introduce our new artist for the month Lauren Ottaway . when asked to discribe her this is what the artist had to say about her work
"After a prolonged absence from painting (since high school), I created an abstract piece similar to this body of work for a friend as a gift two years ago. Since then, I have not been able put my paintbrush down.
I have always loved reading, writing and being around art, though now I find myself spending most of my spare time creating art. I have noticed a shift in myself and now live and breathe art; any chance I get now I devote to creating. I think this emerging artist has always been inside of me, and I’m very grateful that we are now getting to know each other better.
This is my first complete body of work and it displays what I can do naturally with colour, shapes, composition and balance.
I create the abstract paintings because I love to share them; I get the most satisfaction when people study them and point out shapes that resemble different objects to them. I hope this body of work achieves the same thing with a larger-scale audience, and people find themselves interacting with my art and creating their own images within my paintings. “
