Artist Bio

laure paillex self portrait watercolorWalks through the fragrant woods and rocky shores of Maine or over the salty dunes of Cape Cod, visits to romantic English gardens or Irish hedgerows laden with late summer blackberries, or even a stroll around the back yard...the memories of one's lifetime can become the seeds of inspiration!  The sea has watered the roots of my family tree for many generations, and I'm thankful to have been born and raised surrounded by the natural beauty of the New England coastline.  My art is inspired by my gratitude and appreciation for God's grace and provision, and the wonder of His creation.   I'm blessed to be able to share my art with you!


Lauré Paillex has been teaching decorative painting for more than 35 years and has authored nine instruction books, numerous pattern packets and video lessons. Her work is featured in popular decorative painting magazines and has been licensed for the gift market.  Although largely self-taught, she continues to develop her skills through independent study and associations with other professional artists.

Lauré exhibits and teaches at locations around the United States and internationally as well as at her home studio, Cranberry Painter Decorative Arts, a charming antique farmhouse with nature and salt water views of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
