Lois Lawrence Painter

       I am a representational painter who works most often in acrylics and oils. My paintings pay homage to the places I travel and to my hometown of Stonington, Connecticut. Here at home, I return often to the same lovely coves, salt marshes and freshwater ponds close to my home on the Connecticut coast while never producing the same image twice. Instead, I explore these places from different vantage points, at different times of day, and in different seasons.

       My travels most often take me to francophone destinations so the streets and gardens of Paris, the south of France, the island of Martinique, and both rural and cosmopolitan Quebec are frequently represented. Now and then I paint strictly from memory and imagination.

       I am an elected member of the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly; a member of the Copley Society of Art, Boston, MA; and an associate member of the Lyme Art Association, Old Lyme, CT. I am also a member of the Essex, Connecticut Art Association, The Bristol Art Museum in Rhode Island and a juried member of Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. I have shown my work in juried shows throughout the region for many years.
