The Artist Says:

"To many observers, subject matter is the single most important aspect
of a painting, but as a painter, my goal has always been to look past
it. My artistic training emphasized not looking at things as things but
as a group of interlocking shapes and colors. Like most artists taught
in this way, I am happy to be painting anything and everything."


Laura Robb grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and entered Art Student's Academy there at the age of sixteen. In 1974 she moved to New York City to study with Michael Aviano. After returning to the southwest she studied drawing with Ned Jacob and received critiques from Richard Schmid. Since moving to Taos, New Mexico in 1986, Robb’s art travels have taken her to France, Spain, Guatemala, and across the United States. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows and her paintings have received many awards, most notably the John F. and Anna Lee Stacy Scholarship.
