Starting the first week in January 2012, "hometown girl" artist Lórien Eck will be exhibiting her latest artwork at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Laguna Niguel. Born and raised in Laguna Niguel, Eck creates unique mixed media paintings that are rich in texture, color, light, sparkle and dimension. The collection to be featured at the Ritz is inspired by images captured through the Hubble Space Telescope. "Each painting is a one-of-a-kind creation, preserving the touch of the hand and the pure energy of spirit," says Eck. Her inspiration comes from the quest for beauty, truth and the Divine in all beings and things.
After graduating from a local high school, Ms. Eck went on to study art at San Francisco State University. She has spent the last 10 years teaching art to inner city children in Los Angeles, and is now focusing on her own fine art career. Her artwork is dedicated to the loving memory of her sister Alisa Diane Eck.
The exhibition at the Ritz Carlton runs January 5 - March 31, 2012. 10% of the art sales will go to a charitable cause.
