Acrylic Paint and Embroidery

14" x 11" framed and wired for hanging

A delicate mixed-media painting titled "Sweet Not Tart" captures the ephemeral beauty of apple blossoms using acrylic paint and embroidery floss. Soft hues of pink and white dance across the canvas, reminiscent of the delicate petals that adorn apple trees in springtime. Embroidery floss adds a touch of dimensionality, its delicate stitches mimicking the intricate veins that run through the petals. The painting's background, a subtle wash of muted greens and blues, evokes the sense of a verdant orchard in bloom. This original painting on canvas measures 14" x 11" in portrait orientation and comes framed for ready display. The painting is an original work of art, not a print or copy. It is framed and wired for hanging, making it easy to add a touch of elegance to your home or office. The artist's signature is visible on the painting, guaranteeing its authenticity.

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.
