Mixed Media, Sculptor
As an artist, Laura walks between the worlds of fine and folk art, utilizing traditional iconography in some very contemporary contexts. The inspiration for her work comes from the lively traditional music, dance and arts which she has studied extensively for more than twenty years.
She works primarily in limestone, soapstone, and slate. Recent large scale projects involve public art pieces in South Kingstown, Rhode Island; she’s also shown her work in Providence, Newport, Maryland, Toronto, Worcester and New Bedford. Recognized as a NetWorks RI artist in 2011, Laura holds an MFA in sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and teaches carving stone in classes taught in locations from the coast of RI to Ontario and back.
She is delighted to be opening her new studio at 30 Cutler Street in Warren in Fall 2015. Laura working at her studio bench.
