Lauren Scott Corwin









With everything happening in the world right now, we took a slight pause on blog posts and figuring out appropriateness/examining new approaches to this blog, and well, life. Naturally, we were drawn to the work of Lauren Scott Corwin. She creates stylized work examining perceptions of our surrounding, and the challenges created by the notions of progress.


Lauren Scott Corwin received a BFA in Painting from Maryland Institute College of Art, and an MFA from the University of Delaware. She has exhibited both domestically and internationally, and has participated in various artist residencies, like the Vermont Studio Center and the Sodus Art Banck. Her work has been published in Fresh Paint Magazine and Studio Visit Magazine. Lauren Scott Corwin currently teaches design at Northfield Mount Hermon School in Western Massachusetts, and lives with her husband and 3-year-old son.

She shares some insight into her work:

After becoming a mother, I started, for the first time ever, to think about this world objectively through the eyes of a newcomer. The filter we apply to experiencing the world, I imagine, is not all that different to how the canvas is handled. Formally, my paintings explore the tension between geometric abstraction and organic shapes. While I never usually have a specific plan when I start painting, the experiences, however mundane and routine, become part of the entire picture. Graphic elements, blocks of color, and formulated environments create a layered reality that challenges the ideas behind “Progress” as we face serious challenges to our planet, our society, and within the confines of our own space. My goal is to get others to look at the world more closely around them and use their intellect and imagination to discover familiarity in unusual places.

Raili Jänese

Capturing personality in a painting is no easy task, especially when it comes to animals. Raili Jänese creates graphic inspired work, in which she explores the nature of various domestic and wild animals, giving life and personality in two dimensional forms, using just a few lines!
Raili Jänese is a self-taught artist from Estonia, who has always been interested in visual arts and design. She moved to Seattle WA in 2018, where she decided to change career paths and follow her passion for creating art.
Curious about animals and their behavior, she utilizes different characters and shapes in her work. She has enjoyed observing and being around animals since childhood, trying to figure out their nature. She is fascinated by how much an animal can tell us without words; serving as inspiration for simplified shapes on her paintings.
In addition to  painting with acrylic mediums, Raili is interested in graphic design and digital art.  She can be often found sketching something on her tablet …
