I am also a proud member of the Art Collective
Finch & Foxglove
My name is Laurence Lavallee aka FLO. From the age of 6, I dreamed of becoming an architect. My ambition to fulfill this dream held no boundaries. I initially completed my Technical degree in Architecture from Cegep du Vieux Montreal and then went on to complete a BA in Architecture at the University of Montreal. After this, I bid farewell to Canada and left everything behind for a new life in the UK.
This new life was great but something was missing and I soon found out that I needed to do something to occupy my creative mind. I started sewing quilt and I found myself spending more time searching for fabrics. I started to dream about patterns which I couldn't find and suddenly I had an EUREKA moment - “Why don't I design patterns!”. I taught myself through books, online courses (The Make It In Design School Module 1-2-3-4 and Make Art that Sells) and tutorials to feed my new passion. Drawing became a day to day pleasure and I am now a freelance illustrator and pattern designer.
My art will engage you by stimulating your curiosity, triggering memories or by simply amusing you. My subject matter tends to include everyday objects, nature, geometric shapes, life moments and childhood memories. I like to use mixed media such as collage, painting, computer illustration, pencil, pastel and a finger or two.
Go get your popcorn! Here is a little animation made by me for MATS. Enjoy!
