The Soul-stirring, Mesmerizing Art of Ann Marshall

Lauren: Lauren came to my studio wearing a simple white dress. Fine art portrait by Ann Marshall | The Decorating Diva, LLC

Lauren: Lauren came to my studio wearing a simple white dress. I hung a piece of blue satin behind her and borrowed a neighboring studio’s great antique chair. I tweaked the colors of her outfit to simplify the color scheme and went for a look that was classic and pleasantly languid. The tone in my work can vary greatly, but I evaluate the purpose of each piece and proceed accordingly. My fine art work can be a little more demented and moody, but with commissioned portraits I keep the purpose of the work in mind.
