Biography:
 

Laura is an award-winning artist with the Federation of Canadian Artists and Fellow of the Ottawa Watercolour Society.

She has been painting, drawing and creating for over forty-five years. A retired high school teacher, she taught art to both teenagers and adults for many years. Today she works in her home studio on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. She also exhibits and shares studio space with nine other artists in the TOSH 10 Studio at The Old School House Arts Center in Qualicum Beach.

"I jot down ideas, making sketches and colour tests in one of my many sketchbooks. Although I like to plan, somehow the painting usually takes over, taking on a life of its own.  The first marks are play and fun, but then the painting demands decisions and discipline. The challenge is to keep the feeling of those first spontaneous marks while developing a strong painting. "
