Hi and welcome!  I’m Laura and I’m an artist living in the Finger Lakes area of upstate New York.  I find inspiration in the beauty I find around me and I transform this inspiration into pieces of art.  

Enjoy viewing some favorite pieces of art, find out about where to see them in person, add to (or start) your personal art collection, or follow along with my journey via my blog!

Sketchy Tree Series

My current ink drawing series entitled “Sketchy Trees” is a look at tree roots and rocks along waterfalls in the Finger Lakes area.  At these particular spots, the water had receded so that the tree roots underneath had been revealed.
