Outside the lines

Alberta Sky, acrylic on canvas, 18×18 by Laurie MacFayden 2023

“MacFayden’s paintings are all about gestures, paint texture and explosions of colour.  Some have a post-impressionist landscape feel, while others are full-on abstract expressionist in style. She talks about her work ‘going where the colours take (her),’ a sentiment that perfectly describes the freshness of the paintings as well as their boundless and infectious energy.”

Foothills, acrylic on canvas, Laurie MacFayden 2021

“The whole point of making art is to touch the heart.
It should have breath and a pulse.
Whether it invokes feelings of joy, love, beauty,
sorrow, despair, even moral outrage…
art should make you feel something.

— Laurie MacFayden

“Thank you so much for creating the beautiful painting
I purchased from you this summer. Every day it brings
energy and movement and beauty into our home.
