Working with a loose idea of pattern and restrained color palette, Laura creates works with insistent rhythm and restrained hues. Her method of layering paint, with both transparent washes and thick, dripping coats, creates depth and allows for accident. Her hand is apparent in each line that is painted and her newest works show a tolerance for letting materials speak without correction. These non-representational paintings employ traditions of Minimalism, Color Field, Pattern and Decoration and textile arts.
Originally from Rhode Island, Laura has a BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art and has pursued a career as a full time artist for nearly three decades. Her work is in countless private and corporate collections including The Four Seasons Hotel (Chicago), Pinnacle Bank (Nashville) and Hallmark Inc. (Kansas City). Laura maintains a studio in the West Bottoms of Kansas City, MO and travels widely to exhibit in juried shows and galleries.
