If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Drawing, Painting
I am...
A mother, artist, writer, singer and Drama Mama.
About my artwork
I live in the mountains of North Carolina, where I collect colorful minerals. I smash them and use a variety of acrylic media to create beautifully textured paintings. The best thing about this made-up medium is thta it has helped to dismantle all my academic ideas about what art is, and what it looks like when it is "finished." (True art is only finished in the eyes and hearts of its viewers...) I call my works in this medium Earthpaint, where cave painting meets canvas.
Artists I like
Picasso, Siqueros, Matisse, Goya, Frida Kahlo, and my talented friends on artmesh.org...
exhibition, exchanging ideas with other artists, liberating my weird art from the mountains.
Centre of the artworld:
nowhere and everywhere

Hello Laura, thanks for passing by and for your comment. this new series is still in the process of manifesting, but having a few paintings already give me a chance to see the direction of what is to come. crystals and other such mineral entities are powerful catlysts for connecting to those energies; your work is also following this path of mystic awakening and i am sure that the best is yet to come for that kind of imageries and energies. wishing you a great and creative day, amicalement, Gilles

Hi Laura!
I'm very glad to be one of your friends, it was a pleasure to be in touch with your personal and so natural research in the field of art, maybe situated between surrealism and archetypal expressionism.
