about the artist.
Welcome, and thank you for viewing my portfolio!
I am Lauren Hurst, a 27-year-old professional freelance artist based in Edmonton, Canada-- and the face behind Lauren Aimee Art!
I work primarily with oil and acrylic paints, aiming to create enchanting dreamscapes with vivid colours and bold, impressionistic brushstrokes.
Since childhood I have felt deep connection to nature, and in my spare time you can count on finding me surrounded by mountains, forests or water (or in a dream world- all three!)
I am also deeply inspired by travel and adventure. Whether it be from my time spent studying abroad along the beautiful Great Barrier Reef, working in the heart of the iconic Canadian Rockies, or backpacking around Europe- I have found sources of inspiration for my art wherever I go.
Feel free to view my online gallery for a taste!
My most recent collection was created en plein air while living in my converted camper van/ portable painting studio and exploring the west coast of North America. Take a look at the slideshow below for some pictures from my adventure!
While I do have original pieces available in my shop, much of my time as a freelance artist is currently focused towards custom commissions!
It gives me great joy to create for other people- there is so much magic in capturing moments inside works of art for people you love. Feel free to contact me directly, or check out my Frequently Asked Questions for more information on how to get your own custom painting.
Thank you endlessly for your support!
