About the Artist

Laura grew up in a small Texas rice farming community which ignited her love of nature. As a young girl, she learned art fundamentals alongside her father as they took oil painting classes together. A failed chemistry experiment ending with a douse in the school safety shower redirected her life path. Her father, ironically with a degree in Chemistry, suggested art class might be a better fit. Life path adjusted and passion in tow, Laura graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Fine Art.

Working in interior architecture, followed by teaching classes at University of Houston, and later in public schools in California, Louisiana, and Texas, Laura added to her art skills. When her husband was asked to spearhead an overseas assignment in the Middle East, she jumped at the opportunity to accompany him and devote her time to painting and drawing in a very different culture and climate. Now Laura lives in Austin with her husband and studio dog, Samson, and paints plein air as much as possible.

Artist Statement

I love nature and I love to paint. It's a blissful union for me. I particularly love to paint trees, rocks, and shadows that interplay therein. As I construct and paint these landscapes, similes come to my mind. Trees are like humans with limbs like graceful ballerinas or with scars like wounded soldiers. Rocks are like buildings enclosing space and defining boundaries. I want the viewer to be drawn into the landscape and transpose the feelings evoked by human parallels.
