'my world through new eyes' - annabel lapsys

Monday, February 1, 2016

I’ve had a love of art since I was young and have experimented with all things creative ever since.  I’m inspired by architecture and travel and sometimes it's just the obscure design details I notice in everyday life which influence my paintings. 

I often start with a clear vision in mind, only to veer off track part way through, and end up with an entirely different outcome.  This exploration and creative discovery is a fulfilling part of the process and makes me wish I had more time to communicate on canvas the diverse images stored in my imagination.

My current work focuses on colour; for some pieces, a striking combination of vibrancy and for others, the subtle blending of softer shades.  These contrasting styles depict my mood as the artist and in turn, are interpreted on canvas.
