Laura is a lifelong resident of the Hampton Roads area. While always interested in art, she became serious about fine art in the late 1990s. She is primarily self-taught and has studied with several local and nationally recognized instructors.
Throughout her career, Laura has won awards and exhibited her work in a number of outdoor art festivals and juried shows including Stockley Gardens Arts Festival, Gosport Art Festival, Seawall Art Show, Norfolk Academy Art Show and Crozet Art Festival. Her work is on display at Crossroads Art Center in Richmond, VA. Additionally, her work is included in the permanent collection of the city of Chesapeake, VA.
Experimentation with both alternative surfaces and combinations of various media is an essential part of Laura’s creative process. Subject matter is primarily abstract and non-objective. The artist’s spontaneous and intuitive approach gives the process a life of its own, with each work a discovery of pattern, texture, and color.
