"I am a minimalist; inspired by the visual world with a focus on the simple silhouette of the object.”
~Laura Welshans

The concepts of my paintings are based on the effects of erosion, the shape of shadows and the simple beauty of flowers.  The goal is to show how the organic fragile nature of Earth and the human-made world coexist through color, shape and light.  I use a limited palette to create well-defined shapes within large negative spaces and apply oil paint in multiple layers for thick textural elements.  

Laura Welshans has always been a creator.  Through the years, she has created through various mediums and is now concentrating on abstracting landscapes and florals by focusing on the simple silhouette of the objects.  
Her goal is to show how the organic nature of the Earth and the human-made world coexist through color and shape.  
She has exhibited within numerous juried group shows including the 61st Delta Exhibition of the Arkansas Arts Center, ACANSA Gallery, Mena Art Gallery, and the Arkansas League of Artists Exhibition.  Her solo shows include ASU-Mountain Home Gallery, Argenta Branch Library, Community Bakery and the Arts Center of the Grand Prairie in her hometown of Stuttgart, Arkansas. Laura’s paintings are included in a collection at The Haywood Hotel in El Dorado, Arkansas, CARTI Cancer Center - North Little Rock, Arkansas and Raymond James in Little Rock, Arkansas. Her paintings have won several Abstract awards.  Born in the St. Louis Metro Area, she currently resides in Little Rock, Arkansas with her husband and two cats who serve as her muses.
