About the Artist
Lauren Bremner’s work takes inspiration from her great love of nature. Lauren develops ideas with studio support artists in response to local surroundings, landmarks and landscapes from further afield. Lauren has deep connections with animals. She adores cats and has created a number of works of this subject in various media. Lauren mainly works with acrylic, watercolour, printmaking and charcoal.
Lauren Bremner is a young Scottish artist. In 2011 Lauren began to exhibit work with the support of Artlink Central, working with professional artists on the Creative School Leavers programme. This transition programme culminated in an exhibition with 'Gallery on the Corner’, Edinburgh. One of Lauren’s paintings on show entitled "Silver Birch’ led to her first commission for the chairman of Forth Valley NHS in 2013.
Lauren’s passion for art has been her lifeline since she was run over by a car aged 11. Suffering life threatening injuries, Lauren fought back to rebuild her life with her family. Art was at the core of her rehabilitation.
Now aged 29 Lauren has continued to work in her Stirling studio since 2017, supported by 3 professional artists. Her work is primarily inspired by her love of nature and animals, particularly cats. Lauren loves to portray the local surroundings, landmarks and landscapes from further afield, including wonderful views from Scotland’s West Coast, inspired by her Cove Park residency in July 2022.
Lauren loves the flow and adaptability of paint, particularly watercolour and acrylic. She uses a variety of brushes and unconventional mark-making tools to create a range of textures in her work. Since 2017, Lauren has also been exploring printmaking, particularly screen print, monotype and dry point. Lauren particularly enjoys printmaking as it always offers an element of surprise. Lauren believes you must allow the process to influence the outcome.
