Lorien Eck

Lórien Eck was born in Los Angeles and raised in Laguna Niguel California. She graduated from San Francisco State University (B.A. Studio Art), St. Lawrence University, New York (M.Ed.), Otis College of Art and Design, and CSU International Programs in Florence, Italy. She is an award-winning educator holding a California State Teaching Credential in Art (K-12) and National Board Certification in Art, Adolescence to Young Adults.

Lórien's muse is a combination of the natural world and the Eternal, the source of light/life.  "I create purely from my instinct and my self-inquiry into truth, beauty and creation itself working with my instruments of alchemy: light (all colors) and the earth’s raw materials.”

Her paintings are infused with spiritual insights that act as a catalyst to transform and uplift individuals and thus our global community.

"My inspiration often comes from traveling the world on volunteer endeavors, meditation retreats and teaching sojourns. I am deeply moved by the rich textures and brilliant colors of India and the deep jungle greens of Thailand where voices of chanting monks permeate the silence before dawn. Trekking the Guatemalan highlands brings to mind the coarse threads of hand-woven Mayan textiles and an ancient culture pulsating with fertility. Living abroad in Ghana I was steeped in images of saturated and intricate batik design motifs and the primal reds of the soil."

Starting in 2014, most of Lórien’s artworks and textile designs are being created using sustainable, raw materials sourced from the earth.  She prioritizes supporting organic farmers and fiber producers (local when possible) and to support fair trade farmers/producers abroad.

Her work has been shown from Malibu, in Santa Monica and Venice, Laguna Niguel, Irvine, New York, San Francisco Bay Area, Firenze and Sardinia, Italy as well as other venues and public spaces. She has recently transitioned from 10 years teaching art to Los Angeles youth and is now focusing on her fine art and design career. Her artwork is dedicated to the loving memory of her sister Alisa Diane Eck.

Her current works of art explore the interaction between the macro and micro cosmos, the elements and the ecological beauty that is Planet Earth.  She offers sessions with individuals seeking self-understanding through her Soul Cosmology Paintings as well as offering creative process workshops for groups both nationally and internationally.

She maintains an art studio in southern California.
