Who I am
Hello there! Welcome. I'll start off by letting you know that the website's name, Lausen Arts, is based on my surname and not the picturesque municipality of Lausen, Switzerland. Actually, I'm a Canadian fine art photographer, digital abstract artist, and graphic designer. Like many artists, the theme of my life has circulated around creativity. I've studied various aspects of art, from traditional illustration, to art history, to black and white photography, to digital graphic design, all through a range of institutions located around the world, from Florence, Italy, to New York, to Vancouver. After training, I was blessed to work as an artist, however it wasn't long before the road turned and lead me knee deep into the world of technology. This was exciting at first, however it started to become more corporate and less artistic. It was about seven years ago when I realized that daily life was full of stress and lacked luster, so I decided to keep my toe in the ever evolving world of technology, which I loved, but I would also place my full attention back in the world of art—which I love more. So, that brings me here.
Why I decided to have a website
My photographic prints are handled by Fine Art America and any art that I wish to sell on products like journals, mugs, t-shirts, etc., are sold via Cafepress. I have dedicated online art galleries at both, therefore it's totally unnecessary for me to have this online personal website, however, it seemed that I needed a type of hub to connect everything together. Plus, it would offer me the freedom to write longer descriptions or stories behind my artwork.

What I think are benefits from Lausenarts.com
There are stories behind some of my art
All of my artistic creations have some type of story behind them and sometimes I like to share with others what inspired those creations to begin with. So, if you don't feel inspired to purchase creative work today, no problem, then maybe I can at least offer you this type of inspiration—a journey of the mind towards creativity.
I provided gateways to other businesses
At the bottom of some LauseArts.com pages, I have included Google Advertisements. Even though I receive a commission from Google Adsense if you click on the ad, I must also let you know that the original intent for putting them on my website was to help my visitors. You see, I realized that I couldn't possibly provide a product for everyone, therefore it would be only logical for me to assume you might not find what you were looking for here. HOWEVER, I could provide alternative opportunities like a connection to other businesses that may be able to provide you with what you are looking for.
