Biography


I was born  in Roanoke, Virginia. I moved to Montana in 1994, and studied fine art at the University of Montana in Missoula for two years. I completed my formal art education at the San Francisco Art Institute, earning a BFA in 1999. City life was exciting, but my affection towards Montana was too strong, and I returned to the Big Sky state in 2000.
 
Today, I make my home in Missoula where I paint in my studio. I have a true passion for the wild spaces of the west, as I document my experiences of nature in evocative abstract landscapes. I love to work with color and light in representing the moods and places I have seen in the wilderness. I have backpacked extensively in Montana, Canada, Wyoming, and Alaska, and draw on these locations to create my oils. My work is as much about memory as it is about place. I look upon my paintings as a map of my life, which I am constantly creating.

Through my work, I wish to share peace and positivity. When I am creating my work, I feel a sense of meditation and calm. To share this work with others is truly a gift and I am grateful. You will see that I create many dreamy landscapes, I also create realistic birds, a continuing body of modern linear abstract work, marine work, and other animals. I have a growing collection of hat designs and my hats are available in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/LauraBlueArt I follow my intuition through painting, drawing, and creating.
