Working primarily in oils, Laura’s paintings are often described as haunting and addictive. Her atmospheric vignettes are filled with metaphors, and her subjects could be said to have a timelessness. Mostly self-taught, Laura has recently been a studio assistant to her Mentor, Portrait Artist Leslie Adams. She has attended David Gray’s Portrait workshop and continues to study the Art of the Masters in the Detroit Institute of Art and the Toledo Museum of Art.
Laura has often stated that she feels she is living in a modern day Renaissance as there are some very wonderful living Artists, that she admires. "Embracing the Illustrative Arts, it is natural that my paintings have illustrative narratives. I frequently employ metaphors that help me address certain dilemmas from past and present. My process involves an indirect painting technique, this means that there is a buildup of layers and great care is required to execute my paintings."
