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.  Art is my way of processing the world and learning about what surrounds me.   

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!

50 New York Waterfalls Project

Some of my most popular paintings are from my 50 New York Waterfalls project where I hiked to each location and then later painted the beauty of each waterfall.  Explore each painting and click on each to learn more from the associated blog post.
