Laura Harris "While Resting"
Laura Harris "While Resting" 36x48 Acrylic & Mixed Media on Canvas
Described as "beautifully imperfect" Laura's paintings speak to an inner voice often ignored - with strikingly bold colours and texture, each painting takes you on a journey that requires contemplation and offers discovery.
Mostly self-taught, Laura began painting in her teens. With her draftsman father teaching her perspective and technique, he also encouraged freedom of expression. Before coming a "serious" painter, Laura attended college and worked as a graphic designer, specializing in corporate identity. In 2001, her successful design company gave way to her full time art career.
It is a very exciting time for her - with a run of successful shows and critical acclaim, she is continuing her journey with a strong sense of play, and a refreshing confidence and flare. "The work keeps getting deeper, more honest. I continue to work on a piece until I feel it breathe on its own".
