The first time we met Lanie Mann was at her home studio in Georgetown and it was pretty much love at first sight. From the gorgeous paintings on almost every wall to the effortless decor throughout her home, we didn't ever want to leave. Lanie herself could not be a more warm and genuine person, we could have chatted with her all day without even noticing the time passing. And did we mention the adorable coffee station she had set up for us? 

 

 Lanie's artwork is colorful and inspiring and we are so happy to get to share it with you today! Keep scrolling to learn more about Lanie and her artwork or click here to start shopping!

 I was raised in North Carolina where my mother, an artist and art teacher, filled my childhood with projects and books and conversations about color and composition. Later, I took studio classes, studied art history and lived abroad in Florence where my passion for painting became clear.

I am inspired daily by the beauty in nature, photography, fashion and interiors and am drawn to colors and arrangements that are clean, fresh and balanced.

 My preferred mediums are acrylic, oil, watercolor and ink, and I use canvases of all sizes to explore color and energy in abstract pieces, to capture light in sea and landscapes and to reflect the spirit of children in unposed moments and natural settings. 

My paintings are loose and layered—purposely imperfect, and my goal is to create pieces that spark connections, ignite curiosity and make people happy. I am an optimistic person by nature, so I want my work to be bright, uplifting and invigorating. I think art should breathe life into every space.

I currently live in Washington, D.C., with my husband, twin sons and daughter and though I never know where life or my art will take me next, I’m always excited to find out.
