Painter and felting artist Lauren Decatur was searching for a new place to call home, a little isolated cottage tucked away in the woods of New Hampshire had the perfect balance of peacefulness, a natural setting and privacy that she was looking for. She made some changes to the gardens and added storage and worktables, but otherwise embraced the space as it was.
Having found her beautiful oasis in this cottage, Decatur (seen here) has been inspired by the local wildlife for her own artwork. She paints and makes felts animals based on what she sees on her daily walks, as well as takes requests from her clients, including making replicas of their own pets.
Look for Lauren’s artwork here!
