Artists I Admire: Lauren Simone


Farm Utopia

Watercolor, india ink pen, drawing ink, and thread on handmade rag watercolor paper
by Lauren Simone

I absolutely adore the detail and the color that Lauren puts into each of her drawings (click on the image to zoom in). They are wonderful imaginary landscapes which make you feel as though you are stuck inside of a great adventure novel.  Perhaps my favorite part of her drawings are the details.  I love the threading that she does around the land masses and the fact that she goes back to them and paints them in varying colors.  It gives such a great depth to the piece.  
Lauren has been my Etsy bud for a while now and we are both fortunate enough to live in Maine and be on the Etsy Maine Team! Visit her shop-– she currently has a Valentine’s Day Sale running!  Tell her Jamie sent you!
