Lauriana Glenny (Laurie) has worn many different creative hats since graduating as a Fine Art Student from the Technikon Natal in Durban in 1994.
Aside from all the graphic designs sold, textile designs commissioned and printed, murals and walls painted, stationery ranges designed, and art classes taught,
her career highlight remains her solo exhibition of mixed media oil paintings entitled, “En-Route” at ArtSpace Durban in 2010.
This love for painting has prompted her long-awaited return to her studio in Hillcrest to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a full time professional artist.
Her style is best described as being loose and expressive, but always grounded in reality, with strong observation skills and good sound drawing at its base.
She enjoys capturing her emotional responses to her subject matter and tries to express this through her mark-making and the layering of paint.
Her favorite subject matter is that of a botanical or still-life nature, but she also enjoys the challenges of landscapes and the occasional non-commissioned portrait!
Do visit my studio, but please call for an appointment first.
