My Floral Artwork Inspires Students

I am pleased to mention that my "Pansy Parade" painting from my Funky Floral series was the inspration to Year 6 students at the Marian Vian Primary School in Beckenham, Kent, England.

"The theme of the Gallery this term is spring flowers. Year 6 were inspired by the work of a Canadian artist Lisa Lorenz.
The children used wax crayons to draw the pansies"

Back from Beautiful Mexico

Hi Everyone, sorry I have not been blogging lately, but I decided on a last minute trip to Mexico. We stayed at the beautiful Valentin Imperial Maya in Riviera Maya. It's a gorgeous, first class all adult resort. The beach, the grounds, the rooms, food and service was excellent. It is the best all inclusive resort I have ever been to, and I can't wait to go back.

I am bursting with inspiration after seeing all the beautiful foliage, ocean and colours during my stay. Now its time to get back in my studio and finish my orchid painting and begin some more. Wishing you all a lovely week ahead and happy painting!
