We are thrilled to announce that Sorelle will now be carrying original artwork and prints by our new artist, Laerta Premto. Based in Connecticut, Laerta works in watercolor and ink on paper, focusing on animals and architecture.
Laerta Premto is a multidisciplinary artist who inspires others to push their boundaries by embarking on travel adventures and self development through her whimsical illustrations. Her personal adventure began at a young age when her family immigrated to the United States from Albania. The challenges and struggles of learning a new culture and language only fueled her curiosity and desire to see more of the world. She graduated with a BFA from University of Hartford and earned her masters at CCSU where she studied in China. Since then, she has united her passions for art and exploration by working as a designer and illustrator and traveling the globe. She is currently learning French and publishing a book.
"Laerta's artwork is whimsical and charming," says Sorelle Owner, Sandy. "Her paintings and prints are perfect for kid's rooms, nurseries, or even over a desk in a cheerful or quaint office space. I love what her work brings to the Sorelle collection - it's minimalistic, illustrative, and just so fun."
You can see all of Laerta's original framed paintings on paper, as well as custom prints on her Artist page.
