Through meditative repetition, rhythm, pattern and color, Laura creates awakening and aliveness in her art. As a child of the Midwest summers, the lush farmlands of the region and the bluffs of the Mississippi River, all speckled with color have given great inspiration to her work. Not only Midwestern summers have inspired but as an adult, European Travel where she is never without her camera gaining inspiration from the formal gardens of the area has played a large role, as well. Laura works mostly in acrylic with a layering process through mark making. She intuitively paints and does not plan a painting but allows it to unravel and tell its own story.
