Inside an Artist’s Mind: Laura Trevey

I am being true to my promise about attempting to re-ignite my creativity. Signed up for some art & design classes in October & November, so excited! Last week, I was yet inspired again by another amazing artist, Laura Trevey. She is a master in watercolor painting & delights us with her bright, bold and beautiful work at her Etsy shop & her blog. So here’s my little Q & A for her…

Bold- sparkling jewelry, fabulous clothes

Beautiful- sunsets on the ocean, amazing art

2.If you weren’t a watercolor artist, what other career path would you have chosen?

“I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love what I do & I am lucky to share it with others.”

3. You love vibrant colors, any favorite color combination?

” I love lime green & hot pinks…bright orange with yellows…and especially teals, turquoise & aqua colors, reminiscent of the Carribean Sea.”

4. Was there a person, situation or event that prompted you to be an artist?
“I have always loved to paint. You might say it’s “in the genes.” My grandmother was a fabulous artist as well as my Mother.”

5. As your art evokes your personality, so does your home & fashion style. How would you describe your home style?

“My home is a traditional style with modern accents throughout. I love oriental rugs, mahogany furniture & antique pieces paired with abstract art.”

6. Where do you feel your art is going?

” Watercolor painting always fills me with happiness, almost like a meditation. I am always looking for ways to express myself on paper. Each day that I paint brings joy into my life.”
And this one is my favotite one by the way. How adorable is this tea cup? Pass on the tea cakes please!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little interview ands thanks Laura for sharing your wonderful work.

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
