LAURIE J. COCHRANE - LJC
As a painter and photographer, I love to capture landscapes and abstract natural views. The need to paint and continually discover drives my expression of the inner and outer landscape.
Notions of space and colour allow my work to be intimate yet universal. I approach my painting in a naturalistic manner. I explore a variety of subjects from landscape, cloudscapes and florals.
My most recent series was cloudscapes. "In this series, the artist focuses her artistic eye on the sky above, capturing the peaceful, soft-edged view of white clouds against blue skies. There's a beautifully meditative quality to these works." D. Jeffs
I studied Fine Arts in Perth, Australia through college and have a degree from Curtin University.
More recently I have returned to my origins in Northern Ontario where
I have my Up North Art Studio. I am working on the series "Mapping Pines" honouring the windswept pines, rocky shores and the skies above.
"Laurie Cochrane’s paintings are collected in Australia, Canada, England, the USA, and around the world. Laurie believes that art can open minds and open doors to connecting us to new worlds of understanding." J. Davey
