Lauren Henry
Visual Artist
  “Art is about connection. In my paintings of the northern Ontario landscape, I seek to create a bond that leads to an emotional response. My choice of using deep textures, vibrant colour, and bold outlines to yield a more intimate, tactile connection to the rocks, trees, and waters of my landscapes... and capturing this spirit and energy, is my visual quest.”
Influenced by the simplified, holistic forms of native art, and by the landscapes of Northern Ontario, Lauren seeks the spirit in nature. Making use of bold forms, strong lines, layered applications of paint, and vibrant colours to interpret her subject, she works to create a feeling of connection and harmony with nature.  In her figures, she strives to portray the dignity and energy of the human form.
