The Artist Says:

While being on top of a mountain is exhilarating and fairly epic finding a unique and wildly-dainty bloom on a tiny plant along a walking path is also a moment of wonder.  My hope for myself and you is that we will see the beauty all around us.  Whether it be in the face of child we sit near, the view of a field and trees we pass by or even a piece of glassware we have at home.  Our lives will be richer and we will be more grateful and happy when we see the beauty that surrounds us.  I hope my art sparks a sense of wonder in us, that we begin to notice more as we go through the rhythms of our lives.


Meet Laura: She’s a native Texan who’s lived in Nevada, Oregon, New Orleans and Nashville.  Her recent move to Dallas brought her closer to her roots and has afforded her the opportunity to put aside her career in the non-profit world and pursue a long held dream of creating art full-time.  Art must be in her blood.

Her current inspiring artists are Mary Whyte, Michael Holter, Jan Kunz, James Toogood, Susan Bourdet.  At present she is studying under notable oil painter Phil Starke. She is also a fan of “Watercolor Secrets” book by Rachel Wolf. “Learning is a [...]
