About Loz Tronic
My name is Loz - which is short for Laurie-Emma - and I'm based in leafy West Sussex, in the South East of England.
I have had an intense interest in drawing since a very early age, and at five years old sent a biro drawing of a man's face to Tony Hart. Sadly it was never shown on TV, but I had my first moment of glory at ten years old, when a drawing of mine was put on display at Stockport Art Gallery. It was of a Victorian schoolboy playing conkers.
I also recall being the only child at my school that relished the incessant Manchester rain; meaning I could spend breaktimes doodling on scrap paper while my classmates lamented being stuck indoors.
I studied (and failed) Fine Art at Haywards Heath College from 1998-2000, during which time I had some of my work exhibited at Sussex Arts Club and dabbled with some children's book illustrations, before becoming a semi-professional musician. I didn't really engage in much creative artwork during this time, and it was only after a personal crisis in 2011 that I was moved to put paintbrush to canvas for the first time in my life. I'd always assumed I couldn't paint, so I'd never previously tried, but I surprised myself with that first attempt and continued to produce more work.
I currently have work on exhibit at Ryde Steampunk Gallery, Far Rockaway in Shoreditch, and had work up for auction at the Top Secret Art Project in Brighton, 2015.
I held my first solo exhibition in March 2014 at Cato Mansions, Wandsworth.
As a creative person I am driven by the love of working on a piece and seeing the completed article. I draw and paint for pleasure, and gain a lot of satisfaction from delivering commissioned pieces to delighted clients.
If you like my work and are interested in a commission, please get in touch. I also still have some original pieces available for sale, and have prints of my existing work (plus other printed products) available on request.
In the meantime, thanks for looking!
