Description The red in this abstract contemporary painting really stands out. The blue circles seem to lift off the artwork and have a life of their own. The background is made up of splashes of paint that was allowed to drip in a few different directions.
Laura Carter, Ottawa Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement I am new to selling art online but not new to the artistic experience. After studying art I went on to sell it at a custom picture framing store and gallery. I was the owner/operator for eleven years but when my family expanded to six children I decided to concentrate on my own art and spend my time at home. Years of running a successful brick and mortar business with at least one to two children running around the store with me has helped shape my multi tasking talents! I started that business when I was only 24 and made it a success, now I am putting that same ambition into shaping myself as a professional self represented artist. While I do have a few paintings showing in a gallery I find it more viable to try and find my niche online while surrounding myself with my family.
With my expertise in custom picture framing don't hesitate to pick my brain when it comes to frame choices or home decor. When I was in the industry I quickly got a reputation for outstanding design and colour choices. Every year I donated dozens of framed memorabilia to a local radio show rock auction with all proceeds going to the local childrens hospital. That's where my creative juices really got flowing. Now I satisfy them by creating art that is an honour to sell to you. [hide]
