Dramatic color and a contemporary sense of compassion exemplify the work of British artist Loren Grey. The energy and unique flair of her floral paintings form a focal point in any space, and draw us in, to experience their unique textured surfaces. After studying Fine Art in Winchester, England, Grey moved to the West Coast of England where she now lives and works. Her passion, other than painting, is her wonderful garden in which she grows the original flowers that end up in what she calls her “flower portraits”. The colors and themes of the work often depend on the particular favorite of the season.
Loren Grey is always experimenting with new techniques and materials, though her specialty is her own personal development of an encaustic method. The color in the painting is enhanced with layering “washes” of wax and paint.
