Biography:
 

Lainey Benson feels that she was destined to paint, even if she was slow to get started. Lainey comes from an artistic family. Although Lainey's own career path initially took her into health care, she is now following in her family footsteps and loving the life of an artist.

'As it turned out, the urge to paint was stronger than my career ambitions," she admits. "So, after some deliberation and a sense of relief, I returned to my studio. And so for the past fifteen years, I've been devoting much of my time to painting and I feel all the richer for it.'

'Part of the pleasure of painting for me is either hiking in nature or walking through older urban areas of towns or cities and recording their charm with my camera. I am inspired by the blending of light, shapes and colours found in both wild and tamed worlds. I love returning to my studio with these fresh images, which I then try to capture in my paintings.'

'These days, I spend a good deal of time on commissions. It gives me real pleasure listening to the stories of my customers. From there with the help of  photos, I turn those stories into paintings. Each situation is splendidly unique.'
