Every month we like to spread the love by sending a 1 gallon kit to someone who has used the #artresin hashtag on Instagram ... and then we share their work with the world!
Congratulations to Laura Van Horne, our lucky winner for April!
Laura Van Horne is a mixed-media artist based in Seattle, WA.
Laura's work includes encaustic mixed media, acrylic mixed media, watercolor, textiles, ceramics, ink and epoxy resin, celebrating everyday objects such as houses, dresses, birds, and vintage objects. Many of her pieces include found organic objects, textiles, pages from books, or items from flea markets. Passionate about art since childhood, she has been painting for the past 20 years and teaching art classes for 10 years.
In Laura's words: I create art because I have to. It is what drives me. The excitement to try new things lights a fire inside me. I gather inspiration from so many different things. I am drawn to nature, photography, humor, and everyday objects. My ink and resin pieces are more meditative works and, as a result, they appear organic in nature. I see so many different things in them, geodes, science experiments, human cells, orbs."
