Lily LaFollette – Earthy Visions LLC


Lily LaFollette was born in Virginia. Her endless zest for life was influenced early by her father’s navy adventures, her grandmother’s zest for life, and her mother’s talent for drawing racehorses.

Over the years, Lily has embraced creativity in various forms of media; however it wasn’t until she explored painting that she found her true passion.  She prefers to work mainly in oils, enjoying the lengthy open time of the medium.


Discovering new places creates excitement and stimulates her imagination, allowing her to explore a feeling or mood in her paintings while observing the reality. The colors chosen, values selected, and the execution must all lead up to the desired effect. The Plein Air studies from her travels are often incorporated into larger studio pieces, allowing her to expand on a chosen theme.


In her current direction, fusing mood into her paintings allows her to forego the more obvious theatre of atmosphere to explore the emotional experience.  Painting “en Plein Air” (French for in the open air) provides stimulation and inspiration to fuel her direction.  Compressing an unwieldy theatre of perception into a pigment interpretation within the confines of a canvas is a daunting process that lends credence to her studio work.

Studying with many nationally and internationally accomplished mentors and instructors over the years has enabled her to gather the skills to explore new techniques while expanding her knowledge of design, fundamentals and technique.
