Spotted on Etsy: Changing Realities Art Gallery

I am so happy to have stumbled upon these original pen & ink, stylized landscape drawings by Lawrie Dignan on Etsy. His work is amazing and speaks for itself.

Here is a blurb from Lawrie Dignan's Etsy profile, please stop by and check out his amazing shop, Changingrealities, and get to know him a bit more:

Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada Lawrie is a self-taught artist whose unique drawing style has developed through his years working as a technical draftsman in British Columbia’s civil service.
In 1987, life experiences caused the artist to focus inward, seeking ways of self expression. From this point on, his own style of pointillism and line drawing has been developing. His years spent as a technical draftsman has strongly influenced the stylization of his landscape works. The contrast of natural and technical is very apparent in Dignans’ pieces. The subject matter is derived in part from photographs, natural landscapes and life experience which are then rendered into his own stylized reflections. The pen and ink pieces become a filtration of those influences and like the artist, express a freedom and emotion that is orderly and controlled. Trees take on an architectural essence while the organic forms merge effortlessly with the hard-edged elements on the paper surface.

...I love it!
