The inspiration for my paintings comes from the natural world. I'm strongly attracted to colour and light and I like to use rich, colour in my paintings. Colour is a wonderful tool to reflect emotion and mood. My paintings all come from an emotional response to my subject. I have a passion for animals and I love painting them. I enjoy trying to capture their personalities, that quirky essence that makes each one an individual. I am intrigued by the way they interact with the world, each animal has its own unique perspective on life which demands to be captured in paint.
I paint full time and sell paintings and prints worldwide as well as taking commissions to paint private paintings. I also exhibit here in the UK. You can find more of my work on www.deniselaurent.co.uk.
