Art is Alive.
Laurie is a US-based nature botanical artist known for her detailed whimsical flower watercolors. Using only the finest quality materials her paintings murals and custom painted furniture are investment pieces that will bring nature home for decades to come.
Nature has always spoken to me. Through long walks in the woods, planting a cutting flower garden or sitting meditating under a tree, the whispers of the natural world speak and I humbly listen. I have sat quietly in the woods, within minutes animals would start to appear, investigating this new smell, what is this? If I sat very still not long a chipmunk would come and sit on my knee or birds would fly very close to land in a branch along side me. I have cherished memories of those days and my walks with Mom and the dogs (several very large Standard Poodles) in the woods. We never knew what we would discover, maybe an undiscovered single wild Lady’s Slipper under a hemlock tree which to our delight happened early one spring morning. No matter what the problem after an afternoon or morning in the woods and nature, all would be well.
For the next several years I traveled many roads and learned so much about this human experience. Nature has always been my anchor and teacher allowing me to observe her beauty, wisdom and power. I live in a world filled with fairies and sprites and creature unseen, with ancestors of yesterday’s and of tomorrow’s and the ever connection to Creator/God/Spirit.
Where I am now with my creative process?
I am studying to expand and enrich my art and designs with new techniques and processes. I am working with a technique using watercolor and gouaches on furniture. I am studying how to improve my paintings and adding new work to my portfolio. I am back living and working in my beloved Vermont driving down the many back roads discovering landscapes and wildflowers with my new buddy, a chocolate standard poodle named Jessie James.
I have always been a creative person. I received my BA in Studio Arts, where I studied the fine art of printmaking painting and interior design. My very first love was and still is watercolor paintings. Andrew Wyeth’s watercolors and Redoute’s illustrations inspire my work. My work experience includes working closely with an interior designer at Sotheby's in NYC for restoration of painted chairs.
My current obsessions include: garden flowers, dirt roads, Vermont, fairies, wooded landscapes, journal making and oil painting.
Laurie Rohner Studio and my shop Between The Weeds combined forms my dream originally rooted in Vermont. It is how I view nature as I look between the weeds of life because beauty is found everywhere in nature. A weed is just as beautiful as a garden rose. Sometimes a wildflower is hidden in the blades of grass.
I hope you enjoy my collection of work. I am grateful for the opportunity to share it with you!
