Now living in Mendocino County, Laura's interest in the natural world is a major focus on her work, both plein air and in the studio. She paints in acryli and oils, as well as keeping journals with ink and watercolor.
She earned a BFA from San Jose State University, a Masters in Art from the University of Victoria. She has lived in Eugene, the Bay Area, and is now happy to have a home studio in the hills outside of Willits. Her inspiration comes from a love of Nature, a delight in light and color, changing seasons and living things.
