Laumee Fries


“Punk is not about clothing or hairstyles. It is about the energy drawn from a broken heart in the face of a relentless fate. It’s the ability to read between the lines and to stand one’s ground.“ Glen Matlock (former bass player fort the Sex Pistols)


“Obstacles are not blocking the path. They are the path.” Zen saying


About Laumee

I create figurative and abstract paintings on canvas or old and abandoned textiles with egg tempera, soy milk and earth pigments. My illustrative drawings on paper are made with pencil, charcoal, soy, and ink.

Myths, fairy tales and my own written stories are an essential part of my art – but nature and Zen inspire me as well. I create people purely from imagination by slowly painting or drawing them into existence. I like to spend time with them – get to know them in a way – while they slowly evolve in front of me.

My work is about remembering that we all belong to this world in a much deeper sense than we usually think. And about the creative strength, that lurks in dark places and the wildness in the things we neglect.

My studio

I live and work as a freelance artist and author in a Norwegian house in Windeck near Cologne in Germany.

Before I came here, I lived in Berlin, Switzerland, Luxemburg and many other places. But the quietness and the wild nature made me fall in love with my new home. The landscape is so inspiring.


Natural colours

Natural paint is something I am really passionate about – and I like to pass on my knowledge. That’s why you find many recipes in my blog to try for yourself.

Almost all of my paintings are made with natural materials such as egg tempera, charcoal, earth, ink and fibers. And I also dye fabric with plants or make my own ink. Maybe I can induce you with my enthusiasm for these great materials.
