 Lainey was born in Colorado and raised in the Ottawa Valley. Growing up in a family of artists and musicians, her future as an artist came as no surprise. 

At age 17, Lainey traveled to British Columbia, making her home and raising a family in the idyllic mountain town of Nelson.  Lainey then completed her education in Environmental Planning, but her passion for creating lovely images through various media continued to thrive. So when Lainey finally discovered acrylic painting, a new love was born. 

Lainey now paints full time. Through her love of travel and the great outdoors, Lainey finds endless inspiration for her work. She is continually delighted with and astonished by the beauty of the world, which is reflected in her paintings.

Lainey is inspired by historical Canadian artists such as Emily Carr, Clarence Gagnon, John Kasyn, John Casson, William Kurelek, and Ted Harrison. She has also had the privilege of studying with and been inspired by a variety of contemporary artists. 

These days, Lainey divides her time between the BC Kootenays and the Ottawa Valley, surrounding herself with both natural beauty and elegant, small town charm. She seeks to capture the character of these attractions with her vibrant, uplifting style. 

Lainey is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and of the West Kootenay Chapter of the FCA.
