Feedback From Commission:

Type: Painting Commission

Location: New York, USA

“I recently purchased a beautiful piece of art from Laura Elliott. Not only was the piece exactly what I wanted, but Laura handled the whole transaction very flawlessly. I was looking around for something colourful and luckily stumbled upon this website. I saw something I loved but when inquired about purchasing it, Laura told me it was already sold. That certainly didn’t stop the search and Laura quickly responded saying she could paint one like that if I was interested and I could even choose the colours.

The next few interactions with Laura involved choosing colours and getting a proof of the painting before I had to commit. Paying was very simple through Pay Pal and we managed to come to a financial arrangement that fitted my budget. The painting was couriered as soon as my payment had gone through and it arrived within a few days. The whole transaction was dealt with very professionally and was very simple. Laura is an enthusiastic and energetic artist who has a passion for what she does. I could feel this through the friendly and personal e-mails we exchanged while she was painting my special piece.

Thank you Laura.”

• The First Commission of the ‘Landscape Moods Collection’

Titled: ‘Tribal Grounds’  New York, US

My first commission was inspired by the 1st piece in the ‘Landscape Moods Collection’ titled ‘Torn’ (shown below):

My collector saw the first painting and adored the composition and colour palette. This commission enabled my collector to closely match the colour scheme of her home and personalise the size of the final painting. A perfect opportunity to finish her lounge.

The following pictures show some detailed, close-up photographs of the final painting:

• Art Inspiration: Drawing Inspiration From Films & Comics Like Marvel ‘Dr. Strange’

Above: ‘Strange Rainbow’ by © Laura H Elliott


I recently saw the stunningly visual film from Marvel titled ‘Dr. Strange’. Originally written in comics, this film translated such drawings and storylines into an exciting mixture of visuals for me to digest, especially as an artist. The image below is an drawing from one of the comics which represents how another dimension in the ‘Dr Strange’ stories, showing how it looks, which is packed full of neon.

It was in 2016 that I took the leap of faith after a call for a punk exhibition. This inspiration started to fuel my imagination with neon and bright tones, with the ‘Landscape Moods’ paintings taking a new direction :

Above: ‘Pink Punk’d Panther’ Sold

 As my work progressed, I have fully embraced and am enjoying every minute exploring how bright colours in my paintings explore my feelings or ‘moods’. 

The following two paintings created in January 2017 progress my exploration of colour. The first painting below will be exhibited at:

‘100% Abstract’ exhibition by Le Dame Art Gallery at the Meliá White House in Regent’s Park, London

1st February – 12th March 2017

Artwork Focus: Finding My Artist Voice, Inspired By Picasso

My First 3D Sculpture Test, Inspired by 2D Paintings by past master Picasso

It is always hard to start your journey as an artist, with my journey starting in 1992. Where do you start…

What do you create? Which medium do you chose? What subject do you paint? Where do you start in creating work?

Though, at first, my journey was a bit haphazzard, I eventually found my feet and it came to me naturally, drawing on my life long, never ending imagination. Saying this, it was not till approx 1991 when I first found the 2 mediums I loved: clay and acrylic painting, I was in love. I have used them ever since and I adore them as much now as I did the first time I laid my hands on them.

My life-time adoration of Picasso began in 1992 through books and gallery visits. Drawing from Picasso’s work, it meant that I explored many ways to create my artworks for my A Level Art and Design in 1995. 


I tested out all manner of ideas: drawings, paintings and then I realised that there was a way forward…sculpture. For my final artworks I wanted to explore and create my own unique sculpture, which reversed how Picasso created a 3D effect on a 2D canvas. The picture below was my final formal exam piece, but this was worlds appart from my real ideas. Which is the sculpture shown below:

Above: ‘Untitled’ (1995)

​It was in 1994 that I began to explore the ideas of playing with mediums, like I mentioned above, this was discouraged by my teachers. Despite this, I read books and studied artists. 

It was when I found Picasso, that I began to do what *I* wanted to do and I started to build a portrait sculpture. 

When I learnt about Picasso I visited the Tate Modern and saw one of his sculpture portraits or busts and I was energised. I knew my next step!! I began to create a sculpture created with:

  •  A wooden base
  •  Chicken wire forming the main shape
  • Plaster of paris bandages
  • Card to create hair round the face and to form the pony tail at the back
  • Acrylic paint to create form, depth and to emulate how Picasso creates a 3D effect on a 2D canvas

Once the piece started to take shape and I felt obliged to stop this artwork and begin another. 

Below is an example of Picasso’s amazing paintings that also inspired me:

Saying this, my teacher disliked it so much she told me to put it in the bin or more precisely the skip!! I am sure you would understand it was quite heart breaking; however, before I threw it away I took photographs. This piece, shown below, is a reproduction of a self portrait: my hair brushed back into a pony tail with wisps of hair surrounding my face.


My appologies for the poor quality photographs

Above: Left = face / Right = right hand side of head with hair in a bunch

Above: Left = left hand side of the head / Right = reverse of head with the stripes swept into a pony tail

My teacher was a traditional or realism lover and she discouraged me to test out new ideas, hence why the painting below is more realistic, with a hint of impressionism:

Above: ‘Untitled’ (1995)

I continued with this new drive to create what *I* wanted to do and in 1995 I created a slotted card sculpture painted with abstract designs with acrylic paint:


In addition, I incoporated structural support in 1 of my 3 my final exhibition artworks:

• ​Art Inspiration: IS ‘Navy the New Black’?

IS ‘Navy the New Black’?

It was during my studies of my ‘Art and Design Access Diploma’ that my thoughts of black where challenged. It may sound a bit crazy, but I was taught that, technically, black and white are tones, not colours.  By using red, yellow and blue pigments you can create every colour you wish, yet a pure black is not achieveable. The same is said regarding white, which is the lack of pigment, again, hence why black and white could be thought of as tones.

Personally, I use black and white to expand my colours during painting; therefore, creating an extra choice of colours (as shown in the colour wheel below). 

Saying this, we can see how a deep colour can be subsituted for a tone, such as navy. It creates a rich colour palette for an artwork, walls and soft furnishings. Below is an example of navy features, with a navy sofa and artwork that enhances this trend:

Above: ‘Shedding Punk’d Viper’ on display

Buy the painting shown above at:

I believe this reduces the stark contrast and offers a smooth velvet finish. I think it is good to note that the colour blue is the most popular by far, with 40% men and 27% women of the population in the UK having this preference.

The following information supports this premise:

“Pinterest recognised Navy as one of the top 100 trends of 2017 with a 80% increase in the use of dark blue across users’ boards. Blue is a soothing, relaxing hue that does not compete for attention, think deep inky blues and dark indigo shades. Dark shades make a striking background for featured artwork.” (Degree Art)

I believe the reason behind the popularity of the colour blue can be simply explained: blue skies good weather, blue water is clean and healthy. Blue is linked to positive visuals.
