Vissi d’arte…. I have lived for art
Hello! My name is Lauren. I’m the opera artist. I am a self-taught artist who works with watercolors, acrylic, graphite, colored pencils, and ink. I am also an ardent opera enthusiast, and quite frankly, one of the ways that I remember individual paintings is by remembering which operas I listened to while working. Hence, the operartist, my new website/blog for my artwork. Thank you for checking it out!
I mainly do landscapes, pet portraits, and (people) portraits, but I always try to broaden my horizons with the occasional floral or still-life. I am also a children’s book illustrator. For my landscapes, I paint the places I love and scenes that inspire me by their colors. I accept portrait commissions, though at the moment, I only do people in graphite. I do pets in all of my other mediums as well. One of my greatest joys is working on a picture of someone’s loved one(s), whether they be two or four legged. I am working on being able to offer my art as the original pieces, prints, note cards, and an ever-growing variety of cool items.
Je veux vivre dans ce rêve qui mon evire ce jour encore….
I want to live in the dream which intoxicates me still…..
