Laura received her BFM from the Columbus College of Art & Design where she studied Industrial Design. She lived overseas for 1 year teaching design & drawing at the University of Xiangfan, China. Drawing her entire life, Laura focused on Caricatures after drawing at an amusement park for 3 years. Her current job in sales, selling Beer, Cider, & Mead, has inspired her most recent paintings including beer labels & oils. Artist Statement Working in the beer industry I am surrounded by art: tap handles, bottle labels, posters, everywhere I look there is art throughout the beverage industry. Beer itself is art, crafted carefully & intended to be enjoyed & appreciated by others. I wanted to include some of this art, the labels, into my own painting as a way to appreciate what has inspired me & at the same time create something new. Some inspiration came first hand, sipping a beer or cider while peeling the label off & painting it to my canvas. Please have a drink & enjoy! Cheers friends!
