Lael Weyenberg (b. 1951) is a contemporary impressionist painter who paints intimate portraits of her environment. Her intent is to capture gesture, mood or feeling using her refined sense of color and loose handling of paint in a direct painting approach.
Weyenberg’s subjects include intimate still lifes, interiors of her home and studio, animals, and gestural figurative- people interacting with each other in an environment. Lael views her work as a chronicle of modern times and behavior, and a reflection of her personal journey. Always an observer, she finds subjects for her work in the streets of Santa Fe, Brooklyn, San Francisco, or wherever she finds herself.
Lael has been a featured artist in Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector, and Focus Santa Fe. She is an International Artist Magazine Flower and Gardens competition first prize winner.
A Pacific Northwest native, Lael resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico
