Laura Ottensman is a self taught artist who, from an early age, loved drawing horses and unicorns any chance she could get.  Laura's work is a  reflection of her love for light, earth and its inhabitants.  After running around in circles through college wondering what she would major in, she finally realized she should do what she is good at and pursue painting.  She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in Kinesiology and Minor in Geography.  She then enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Austin, where she earned an Associate degree in Patisserie and Baking.  After working as a pastry chef in Austin for 5 years, Laura got married, and was thankfully pulled in a path that led her out of the city and back to the country where nature is constantly inspiring new ideas and paintings.  She now lives with her husband, 5 dogs, 4 cats and two chickens in South Texas, where she works full time in her studio doing what she should have been doing all along - painting.
