Hi there...

My name is Laila Aaris.
As a child and teenager, I practically lived with a pencil in my hand.
Like so many others, art slipped a bit into the background as education,
children and work demanded more attention.

I went to school, was trained lab tech in Clinical Biochemistry and
worked for a number of years in the private sector doing research on Osteoporosis
- in the laboratory & with data processing.

As time went by - I started to miss the creativity. I convinced the director that
I was the absolutely perfect match for the open position as our inhouse graphic designer.
-The point that I had no other qualifications than my courage & speaking skills...
- was less important.
I got the job, had it for several years and the path to a creative career was paved!

 

After many years in a job as a graphic designer, marketing coordinator and webmaster,
I felt an urge to do something new. I built my own business (from scratch) but sold it again years later
(due to the need of taking care of my health).
I now work fewer hours and on the side have the surplus for what is most important in my heart...
-Creativity!

In my earlier years my pencils were my absolute tool of choise
- first in my adult life I started experimenting with what is now my absolute favorite:
Contemporary / Modern Art (acrylic/mixed media on canvas).

To me, art is my "escape room", 
it's where I can express myself quietly, nonverbally,
it's where I de-stress, where I grow, recharge. it´s where I live...

Art it's nothing less than everything to me!

Inspiration, is everywhere if you are open to see it,
- in all the small details in everyday life, in the variation / nuances of the seasons,
with the children, in experiences, feelings and thoughts.

 

Just open your eyes - and your heart!
