Laura studied art throughout grade school and some in college before majoring in the environmental sciences and minoring in marketing.

Laura works primarily with acrylics and mixed media and enjoys a bold use of color. “The world is so vibrant and beautiful if we only take the time to see.” says the artist, “I hope to bring light and levity to people’s lives.”


Ode To B

Artist Statement

This piece is one of the first I did after finally letting God guide my hand and inspire me and an artist. Instead of thinking so much I began to feel and allow the art to just happen. This marked a turning point where I accepted the courage and protection God was giving me to express myself instead of conforming.

How it fits into contest

My best friend passed away 8 months before I painted this. He was healthy as a horse but the Lord wanted him. I felt lost and during those months my relationship and trust with God grew so strong. I realized that it was a new day and a new time for my strength to be rooted in God, not in people. Here the sun rises over the ocean and this is coastal NC. A brave new day full of possibilities in the walk with God. He encouraged me to put my trust in Him and I finally listened. This painting is an ode to my friend Bryan and honors the unconditional support and encouragement he always gave me...and it signifies the powerful LOVE that God has for me. That love is my armor.


Just me.
