Laura's inspiration comes from the unexpected - the magic of uncovering form and color. She approaches her painting with a sense of movement that reflects her dance background. Laura's work is about beauty, mystery and connection.
Laura grew up in Boulder, Colorado where the arts were always part of her life. She was a performing artist, has worked in film and video, and now dedicates herself to painting. Her work has been featured throughout Colorado and internationally. She has participated in numerous juried shows and studio tours, and her paintings are part of private and institutional collections.
Unexpected surprises - the magic of uncovering form and color inspire me. Day-to-day life slips away as I scribble, painting with my fingers, and dancing the paint around with brushes and palette knifes - always following the movement.
The act of painting and viewing the painting is a visceral experience - it’s a combination of stillness and energy. Painting gives me space for reflection and at times requires a leap of faith, which can be scary, frustrating and thrilling. It's a process of letting go over and over again.
