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!
