LAUREN ROLFE – DRAWING ROOM – 2nd October to 11th November
Lauren started developing the Drawing Room Art as a way of relieving stress from a hectic life as a Primary School Teacher. Little did she know how much she would love it! Since then, she has worked on several commissions, appeared on BBC1’s Sunday Morning Live and been apart of lots of markets all over London.
Her work centres around drawing and painting animals using acrylic, fine-liner and graphite pencils. Her aim, as well as providing bespoke pieces of art for people to display in their homes, is to raise awareness of animal conservation and environmental issues that impact animals. Human intervention has seen the extinction of thousands of species of animals since the cognitive and industrial revolution. Through her drawings she hopes that more people will see the beauty and importance of animals in their daily lives. If anything though, it looks super pretty on the wall!
