Artist Laurel Lovrek

Laurel Lovrek

Laurel relocated to the Celo area eleven years ago to pursue her interest in art and enjoy outdoor life after retiring from architectural practice in Princeton, NJ. All the landscapes, whether oil or pastel, begin outdoors, au plein air. Working rapidly, since the light and atmosphere constantly change, the process requires being in harmony with a greater reality. As an avid gardener, plant forms are of great interest. These works vary from the size of postcard to an atlas. Some were later refined in the studio, but the freshness of immediate experience retained. Laurel is on the web at rosebaylaurel.blogspot.com
