Acrylic Paint and Embroidery

16" x 12" framed and wired 

This mixed-media painting, titled "Flowers of the Wind," captures the delicate beauty and symbolism of blue anemones, flowers known for their association with anticipation and new beginnings. The artwork is created using a combination of acrylic paint and embroidery floss, resulting in a piece that is both visually stunning and texturally rich. The painting features a cluster of blue anemones, their delicate petals rendered in vibrant shades of azure and cerulean. The embroidery floss adds a touch of three-dimensionality to the artwork, mimicking the intricate veins that run through the petals. The anemones are set against a backdrop of swirling acrylic hues, ranging from soft yellows to deep blues, evoking the sense of a windswept meadow. Measuring 16" x 12" in portrait orientation, "Flowers of the Wind" is an ideal addition to any space, whether displayed on a shelf, mantelpiece, or hung on a wall. The artwork's petite dimensions make it a versatile piece that can be easily incorporated into a variety of décor styles. This original painting on canvas, not a print or copy, is framed and wired for hanging. Each stroke of color is hand-painted, and the artwork is signed by the artist.

Lauren Quist

Lauren Quist is inspired by the challenge of achieving harmony through the interplay of hard and soft mediums, blending the softness of impressionism with the contrast of illustrative art.

Her process begins with a photograph, which she transforms into mixed media paintings on canvas through sketching, painting, and lastly embroidery. By incorporating embroidery, she allows light to dance dynamically the canvas, exploring how it touches various surfaces and highlighting the contrasts within. Through art, Lauren aims to engage viewers in a deeper exploration of these captured instances, inviting them to share in the beauty and complexity of the world as she sees it.

After graduating high school, she attended the University of Washington to study architecture but graduated instead with a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts (IVA). Her first mixed media painting, created for her senior studio, combined oil paints and embroidery floss on canvas. In 2013, she participated in her first professional art show, "Around the Square," where she won the Popular Vote Award. Since then, Lauren has continued to exhibit work in several art shows across the Pacific Northwest.
