Waldorf Lazure & Fresques

Discover Waldorf Lazure

Waldorf Lazure murals are created by painting in a continueous brush motion with a water based paint like watercolor. By layering almost transparent shades of pigment one is able to create the soft and harmoneous atmosphere of the Lazure world. Invented by Mr. Rudolf Steiner in 1919, it was first seen in the Waldorf school classrooms. Walls are transformed with layers of color that play with light throughout the day. As the eye naturally looks for depth within the layers and overlapping color, Lazure is often compared to looking at soft clouds in the sky. Today, the Lazure technique is found not only in Waldorf classrooms, but also homes and work spaces.

This Jelly Fish mural is a part of the ongoing art scene in downtown Los Angeles with Santee Public Gallery. Inspired by the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean, I used acrylics to create these bioluminescent creatures.

Snowboard Art

Inspired by the French Alps and the nature found on these flowering mountain tops, this snowboard now finds a new life on exhibition.

Hues of Blues

Each color has properties that touch upon our emotions and mindset, this is called Color Theory. During my art studies in France, I was introduced to Goethe’s Theory of Colours. Althought I had been aware of the power color has in my life to express emotions of saddness or happiness, this indepth observation of color goes beyond.

Living in Art

I feel joy that I have been given the opportunity to transform this space into something magical. It is the perfect place to sip on coffee and eat croissant.

Dancing With Color

The process of a mural is all embodying. At times brushing on color is like dancing to me. It is a moment when all elements of my life come together in order to transform a blank wall canvas into color and expression.

The Golden Hour

Finding the right medium for each mural is a part of my artistic practice. I strive to create unique mural art that speaks to it’s environment.

When in Process

Mural art goes through many constant changes as it evolves into the final art piece. Here I started with the roots and trunk of the trees before branching out to details. This piece consisted of several layers of gold Posca paint pen to give it the shiny metalic consitancy of gold.

Acrylic Mural on wood

Before going wild with color, I run a few ideas by my clients for them to reflect on as either starting points or final drafts. This is a mural painted on an old farm door. First I start with layers of soft collar before delving into the detail. .

Behind the Scenes

The creation for the translucent window signage for the midwife office was a process that began with tracing a mirror image onto craft paper as shown above. This outline then served when painting directly onto the plastic surface.
