Marianne Laiti

My paintings are mainly unique soft pastel paintings on paper.

For me, knowledge and understanding of materials is important. I paint with soft pastels, which I make myself from non-toxic pigments. Their quality is excellent, and with them, colors are intense—yet soft and warm.

I think my paintings are places for the mind and imagination. In them, both color and detail are important. To paint means leaping into the unknown and quietly listening. Somehow, my works often handle the human-nature connection and us all being the same initially. The best feedback I get is when customers tell me how they enjoy spending time with my artwork year after year.
