My name is Rawnie Parsons-Lock. I am an artist and art teacher based in the Netherlands. I love sharing my passion for art with the students that I teach, while being equally fond of the constant investigation and curiosity in my own art practices. Besides teaching and running my small business, I also enjoy being active in nature. This is where I find most of my inspiration.
Through my work, I aim to cultivate a deeper connection with nature and inspire others to appreciate the beauty of their surroundings. I am curious to find out if there is a way to communicate with nature and am investigating the appearance, sound, or sensation of it.
In this era, I believe that we have lost touch with nature. In my art practice, I am trying to find this significant connection. My collaboration with nature led to the creation of the artworks. As I am working with Mother Earth, I find it very important to use mostly sustainable and biodegradable materials. I make my own egg tempera, employ non-toxic pigments, and work on plant-based canvases.
