Fine Art, Fabric & Textiles

My passion is to see what happens with the materials that I use. It is exciting to see how they take on a life of their own, once they begin to flow. The paintings are a constant surprise, never a repeat. My work expresses light, movement, simplicity, and elegance. The paintings are serene but always express a feeling that the viewer chooses. I started late in my art career, teaching, and children somehow got in the way of growth.

More About Laraine

While teaching high school in Lacey, I rediscovered painting, along with ceramics, drawing, and design. My paintings at the time reflected nature, flowers, leaves, and landscapes. A couple of years ago, I switched to abstract work which is exciting. I have also returned to oils.  The materials direct my ideas and I go with the movement on the paper. Where they meet, new lines and textures appear like magic.

 

I also paint with fabric in a sense, drawing the designs and putting together contemporary fabric wall art. Machine pieced, hand quilted and beaded. It is a joy to explore both areas at this time.
