Born in Seattle, Washington of a Norwegian father and a Canadian mother. Growing up on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound of the Salish Sea. Lumiere spent an idyllic childhood raised in an atmosphere of love and artistic freedom, forming a natural setting for creativity to thrive. When a school teacher purchased a little painting from the young 8 year old, the course was set. After years of personal study, Lumiere acquired technical mastery and an astonishing ability to improvise different mediums. We find her wonderfully free to draw inspiration from wherever she finds it, be it the swaying sweetness of a tree, or studying the classical masters. The majority of the artist’s early work consists of fine oil portraiture.
Lumiere’s beautiful oil paintings help usher in the age of enlightenment. Dreams and visions create broad splashes of color and light. Healing energies waking up memories are imparted into every painting, contributing to the peace of mankind. When asked who or what has the greatest artistic influence on her art she thinks for a moment and says, “this very moment of existence”. The influence of spiritual healing is evident in her art. Among the numerous letters of appreciation received, many describe how her art has been used to heal the passing of a beloved family member. The Visionary Art of Lumiere is proudly displayed in private collections in the USA, Canada and Hawaii. The work can be viewed by appointment. Visitors in the shining metropolis of Seattle, Washington and outlying areas can look forward to future exhibitions.
LUMIÈRE ARTIST STATEMENT
The direction of my work is to give collectors light and peace in the form of original paintings and reproductions. I bathe the art in prayer and healing energy, changing the vibration from ordinary to extraordinary. Meditation and prayer create inspiration. Unique ideas come from visions and dreams forming the subject matter. This is my contribution to the healing of humanity and peace for our planet. Painting styles and techniques are decided for each topic and every step planned beforehand. Of utmost importance are the finest canvas and oils used. After the support is prepared, basic sketching using the Golden Ratio directs the lines and shapes. Texture is achieved with paint, pastels, gold and silver leaf. Layer upon luminous layer, weaving of shadows and light. Colors of the spectrum have measurable energy, frequencies, temperature and rhythm of moments of magic until the final layers finish it. Seeing my work live in the minds and memories of my collectors gives great purpose to what I do. They say their homes and businesses ‘come alive’ and they ‘feel better’ when my work is displayed. I greatly value the wonderful opinions and comments of all my viewers.
