Artist Statement

Quite simply, I paint because it makes me happy. It's incredibly fulfilling to start with a blank canvas and create an image that conjures up memories and emotion. I love oil paints because I have more freedom for change with the longer dry time, and I find the buttery texture a real pleasure to work with. For each painting that I create, I try to decide on what the focus or priority for it will be, and center my attention on keeping the surrounding details somewhat limited in their supporting role. Design to me is about keeping things clean with an obvious focal point of interest. I make use of both brush and palette knife to have a mix of clearly illustrated portions to the painting as well as implied areas.

I understand that art is very subjective, but if my style of painting speaks to you and you are interested in a painting, I would be happy to work with you to create something that you and your family can enjoy for a lifetime.

    Laura paints with oils and uses them to capture moments in time that conjure up memories and emotion. It’s not just about creating a piece that enhances your décor, but to create art that moves you on an emotional or even spiritual level.
