Lauren and her husband Brett have recently moved to Florida to start their own school called H&R Studio:
H&R Studio co-founders Brett F. Harvey and Lauren Amalia Redding strive to merge informed technique with sincere content within their own artwork, and that combination--of skill and meaning, the classical and the personal, the past and present--drives the mission of H&R Studio. At H&R Studio, students learn how to create challenging, skill-based representational art, but with breathing room and informality so that each student creates work that is uniquely his or her own.
"Within my art practice, I draw upon two primary influences: my mother’s Cuban family and their cultural and personal legacies, and the meticulous draftsmanship that constitutes my technical fulcrum. I primarily work in the anachronistic medium of silverpoint, drawing with a piece of silver or gold in a stylus to create delicate works that require focus, have no room for error, and possess a tangible yet fleeting quality evocative of memory and narrative.
Line and shadow are woven so that, from their neat labyrinth, the sentiment and psyche of my subject emerges more truthfully. I want to ensure that the faces of my Cuban family are recorded so that their history can be remembered: though despondent, they emerged victorious, and I wish to pay homage to their journey and inherent beauty." ~ Lauren Redding
