Lauren Andersson is a freelance animator and oil painter. She recently began learning to paint with oils while staying at home to care for her son.  She has a small home studio in Almonte and enjoys painting with all natural oil paints and materials.

Her current series, HIVE, explores the sensitivities of animals in the wild. They are inspired by the calmness, uncertainty and awe that nature presents.  Each piece is  painted on hand crafted hexagon canvas made from organic cotton and wood. 10% of sales from the HIVE series will be donated to Big Sky Ranch, Kemptville, ON.
