Love it! It's such a clever way to present a goldfish! The colors are the best! Thanks so much! Now I need to find a frame to display it ASAP! I'm sure it will receive many compliments!

About

Creativity is My Passion!

My name is Lauren Pretorius. I live in the lovely state of South Dakota with my husband, 2 pugs, and 2 parrots. I graduated in 2008 from Northern State University with a degree in Multimedia Graphic Design and Art. I have been offering my paintings for sale online since 2005. I absolutely love to paint, take photographs, and design anything that can be designed!

I create original oil paintings of well known random objects and various types of food. I like to take these otherwise overlooked items and create a piece of art that exposes the whimsical character and intricacies of that object. I emphasize light and shadow in attempt to make 'simple' more interesting. On occasion, I like to involve a little humor as well.

Not only do I love to paint, but I am a photographer at heart! My photography is inspired completely by nature. The thrill of the varied unknown on every photography trip fuels my fire. The light, shadow, atmosphere and actions of my subject are always bound to create a unique and memorable capture with each outing. I spend all of my photography time snapping pics of wildlife and scenery in the outdoors. Whether it be in the wilds of Africa, the towering landscapes of the Rocky Mountains, or even the flat prairies of my home state... I will be found with camera at hand!
