The work of British artist Laura O’Shea is an investigation of colour and an exploration through the medium of oil. She isn’t simply painting what she sees, rather expressing the emotions her subject matter evokes to her on a deeper level.
Laura’s love of art reignited after the passing of a loved one, having found comfort in painting once again after years away from the easel. Oil became her new focus, medium and meaning. Having lived and worked as far as New York, Laura has now settled back home in North Wales where the rolling Welsh hills and local lily ponds give a constant source of inspiration. Laura can often be found painting ‘en plein air’ to capture nature first hand.
With a background in fabric design and painting commissions for hotels, Laura has a delicate eye for colour, paying close attention to the hues she places next to one another other, maximising impact whilst achieving balance and harmony in her work.
