My desire is to capture the spirit of the moment on canvas.
Laraine started out as an artist and gained her business experience by working with companies involved in sales, marketing and design, as well as owning her own gallery. She is a member of the Women Business Owners Alliance as well as several art associations.
Laraine's paintings have won numerous awards and grace the walls in both private and corporate collections throughout New England, as well as New York, North Carolina, Charleston, SC and London .
Her art is intended to be a celebration of life and has a pervasive sense of 'romanticism'. The passionate and dynamic application of paint on the canvas and the artist's signature use of expressive color , shade and light mingle and flirt to create works that invoke feelings and reflection on the world as we would like it to be. Laraine loves painting dramatic scenes of arresting beauty, as well as quiet, reflective works. She considers herself a “romantic impressionist" as well as a colorist. The power her artwork has to immediately brighten a room is no accident.
Her commissions are sought after because they can bring the memories of a favorite place to life, igniting recollections of a cherished place and time : that ideal world of our memories, in vibrant color.
Imagine choosing that favorite place and being able to enjoy the feelings of those memories preserved as a beautiful painting—in living color!
