Hailing from Costa Rica, artist Laurel Anderson (of LaurelsOriginals.com) paints amazing original canvas rugs and custom decor. I really like this particular design called “Tropical Swirl” with it’s more organically painted turquoise circles. How fun would it be to have this on your floor!
About her business and her background she states:
She arrived on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica 35 years ago and began to apply her passion for art and creativity with a small business making hand-painted cotton beach dresses and t-shirts; her designs reflected the surrounding colors of flora and fauna. A small workshop was built on the family farm in Cahuita and the business expanded to training and employing eight local women, sewing and painting clothing items, for the burgeoning tourists to the area.
When I think of painting on canvas, I think of your typical art canvas that goes on the wall. What an intriguing idea to paint on canvas for the floor!
If you’re even in Costa Rica, you can take one of her classes and learn how to paint one for yourself. In the meantime, we can learn more by checking out her youtube channel: www.youtube.com/user/canvasrugs
