Lauren Sansaricq (b. 1990) grew up in Colombia County, NY where from an early age she was not only exposed to the beauties of the Hudson Valley, but also under the teaching of Thomas Locker, was exposed to the traditional painting techniques of the Hudson River School. Taking Mr. Locker’s advice Lauren received a classical education in drawing and painting at the Grand Central Academy of Art in NYC. She has three times been awarded the Hudson River Fellowship where she has continued to study nature and produce paintings in the tradition of the Hudson River School. Lauren’s paintings have been exhibited and collected in venues throughout New York State including Manhattan. One of Lauren’s paintings was recently featured in the New York Times representing “The Great Hudson River Exhibition.”
I recently returned from an amazing painting trip with my sister to Australia & New Zealand. Australia’s landscape and beaches were astounding! The people were friendly and the food was delicious too! In Australia, I spent quite a bit of time in Sydney, painting at Bondi Beach, Coogee Beach , and Maroubra Beach. Also I painted at Summer Bay, Palm Beach, Mona Vale and The Three Sisters. In Melbourne, I painted at The Halfmoon Bay in Black Rock and caught an amazing sight of Red Bluff! Here are some of my landcape paintings made during my trip:
