Masha Laurence's Profile
I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, where my parents worked at the Bolshoi Theatre. From my youngest days, many of which were spent backstage and in the costume hall I acquired passionate love of costumes and everything to do with ballet and opera. My other passion is books, the classics in particular, that is why my artwork generally reflects classic literature characters and period costumes.
I find my inspiration for paintings in books, regency fashion plates, victorian catalog illustrations, antique photographs, works of great masters of old, photos I come across on the internet, period drama and nature.
I am a mom of four and married to my best friend. I love to play with, dance and read books with my family, as well as bake bread and hike in the beautiful mountains that surround our small town. And of course I love to paint, almost as much…
