Artist Spotlight: Laurél Schmid
March 22 - March 26
“The beauty of art is that it allows you to slow down, and for a moment, things that once seemed unfamiliar become precious to you.” – Kehinde Wiley
Nature provides endless inspiration for an artist! On a daily basis we are presented with vibrant sunsets, delicately crinkled flower petals, sunlit seas, moody skies and so much more!
I approach my paintings knowing each one is a creative journey, exploring techniques while building layers with paint and texture. Whether the paint is applied thin and translucent or thick with a palette knife I allow my instincts to take over until the right balance of depth and intrigue is achieved.
I love to express my connection to nature through my artwork. My hope is to awaken the viewers senses, providing an opportunity to reflect on their own connection to nature while appreciating its beauty and fragility.
