Laurence Amelie

I had been searching for the perfect painting for my daughter's room for about 6 months, it had to be pink and it had to be a ballerina. Armed with this criteria I scoured etsy, poured over art galleries online and picked through hundreds of Ebay searches. Nothing fit. Then, armed with a cup of coffee and strolling through Soho one Saturday morning I stumbled into one of my favorite shops, Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture. There in the window was the most beautiful, ethereal, tutu painting EVER. I couldn't believe it. It was everything I was looking for. Girly and light without being sugary and cartoon-ish. It was the grown-ups version of a ballerina painting, but somehow managed to capture my 4 year olds heart as well. I took it home and also snagged a wispy aqua and pale pink cherry blossom oil painting for above my nightstand as well. Since then I have googled her and found so many amazing florals and tutus. I love it all. She is featured quite regularly now in RASCC and has an online gallery as well. I think her work is so modern, but so feminine. Here are two images of her paintings in my apartment in New York.
This is one of her classic tutu paintings. I love the moodiness this has, it's one of my favorites of the tutus I have seen.
This piece sits above my nightstand, I love the colors and the wispy branches.

Loved looking at your apartment on CDT blog. I love how the Darcy chairs (my personal FAVORITES) are placed around the apartment. Daughter's pink room is darling, pretty and feminine yet a little sophisticated. A look I did with my own daughter's bedroom. How great to have 2 beautiful homes to live in:)

Oh, and I just realized the title of your last post was the artist's name....I need to read things thoroughly before posting things like, "who is the artist?" Duh!
