About The Artist

I love colour and I'm always trying new ideas in paint and other materials to get luscious, fabulous colour into my work. Colour brings us joy and makes the world an nicer place.

My name is Denise Laurent, I’m an artist and my work is inspired by the natural world.  I paint contemporary paintings of animals and birds; cats, dogs, sheep, cows, foxes, birds, all sorts of animals, even the odd landscape or flower painting.

I love variety and I work with a variety of media, oils, acrylics and watercolour and these days also resin.

I'm a British artist based in London in the UK where I paint, make prints from my paintings, make unique pieces of jewellery and sometimes venture into bags, cushions and other fun things too.


Would you'd like a unique painting of a favourite animal friend? I take commissions to create original pieces of art for your home in oils or acrylics. People often ask if I can work from photos and the answer is yes I can. I get commissions from many different countries so working from photographs plays quite a large part in the process. I can come and take photos as reference for the painting or you can send me photos to work from. Photos can be emailed to me and I’ll email you with sketches, ideas and work in progress photos so you can watch your painting grow. Take a look at the commissions page.

Wearable Art

Recently I've started making jewellery, mainly because I wanted to experiment with some new techniques and materials. It was accidental really, I wanted a small canvas to work on so cut some small leaf shapes and tried my techniques on those. They looked beautiful and those first experiments became the first brooches, a sort of wearable art. After all if you love it you should be able to take it with you. :-)

Over the last couple of years the brooches have really developed and now I do leaves, cats and dogs, hares and foxes, birds and badgers, elephants and bears, penguins and parrots, all sorts of animals and birds. You can see the jewellery either in my Etsy store or here in the shop. It's a different selection in each as every piece is unique.

I have two pages on Facebook which is a bit confusing I know.
Denise Laurent Art is my facebook page where I post paintings and work in progress of animals, birds, cats, dogs, hares, elephants, etc even the odd landscape or flower painting, and the jewellery of course.
The Painted Cat is my purely cat art page on facebook, I post paintings, prints and jewellery and there's a group where you can share your cat photos and chat to other cat lovers too.

I'd love to see you on facebook, do stop by and say hi. :-)
