Laura‘s a full time musician and artist. Basically self-taught, she paints with acrylic using deep, intense colors. Her love of Key West and Florida is evident in her art, as well as her songwriting.
The fun and laid back Keys and Fort Myers Beach lifestyle inspired her joyful interpretations which capture the beauty and quirkiness of what she sees in her art and songwriting. She paints mainly on canvas, board and driftwood. She paints Key West and Fort Myers Beach Scenes: Key West bars, iconic Roosters and Chickens, as well as, restaurants, historic buildings and well known and appreciated flowers, plants and trees from both locations.
Her painting of the Hemingway House in Key West, was used as the cover of the Hemingway Museum Cat Book and her art also graced the cover of Key West Magazine twice. She has sold her work at The Anne Mckee Art Auction for the past 7 years to benefit other artists and participates in juried shows including, “From a Woman’s Hand” put on by SoDu Gallery in Key West. Laura also displays her art at member shows for Florida Keys Council of the Arts at the Gato Building and at the Studios of Key West (TSKW.org) members shows.
Laura also has a series of paintings and prints from Sedona, Arizona. She has been inspired by the beauty of such magical places and it is reflected in her work.
