First Fridays: Meet the Artist with Lanie Mann
ARTIST STATEMENT Lanie Mann's work is inspired daily by the beauty in nature and color arrangements that are clean, fresh and balanced. Her paintings are loose and layered—purposely imperfect, intended spark connections, ignite curiosity and make people happy. She is an optimistic person by nature, so she strives to create something bright, uplifting and invigorating. She believes art should breathe life into every space. She is a member of Capital Artist Collective and is represented in galleries in Dallas, TX, Naples, FL and Wilmington, NC. BIO Art has been a part of my life from the very beginning. I was raised in North Carolina where my mother, an artist and art teacher, filled my childhood with projects and books and conversations about artists, color and composition. Later, I took studio classes, studied art history and lived abroad in Florence where my passion for painting became clear. I am inspired daily by the beauty in nature, photography, fashion, and interiors and am drawn to colors and arrangements that are vibrant and happy. My preferred mediums are acrylic, oil, watercolor, and ink, and I use canvases of all sizes to explore color and energy in abstract pieces, to capture light in sea and landscapes and to reflect the spirit of children in unposed moments and natural settings. I currently live in Washington, D.C., with my husband, twin sons, and daughter.
