Hello, and welcome to my little blog! My name is Lauren and I live in Tucson, Arizona. I recently quit my day job in order to take a break, relax and do some artwork. I am definitely a beginner, but I am hoping to use this time to learn and grow as an artist. This image shows my little oil painting "Beauty". You can look at my other work at www.fairrosamund.etsy.com. I only have a few things up, but there will be more to come soon! I am obsessed with fairy tales, so that is the primary inspiration for my work. I also love the Pre-Raphaelites, Renaissance painters, ancient mythology (which I studied quite a bit in college, being a Classics major), and the Victorian era. I adore antiques, particularly old books. Anything unique and beautiful makes me very happy! I have followed some other art blogs and it seems to be a very friendly, helpful and warm community that I would love to become a part of. I hope to see you again soon!
