As you have probably guessed by now my name is Laura Wilson and I began painting just a few years ago. I grew up around artistic people and had always had an interest in art but not until recently did I start to paint seriously. My paintings are steeped in my love of water, beaches and time spent at the beach with family and friends. The heart and soul of my work is embodied in my depiction of subjects in nature and the simple pleasures found there. My artistry draws the viewer into my painting and entices them to stay a while with the allure of a sandy beach, a quiet wetland or a lively summer’s day.
A completely self-taught artist, my work is continually evolving. I offer a clean, refreshing style perfectly suited to acrylic paint, my preferred medium. I celebrate the memories, the vacations, the beauty of the natural world, and a chance to escape the sometimes harsh reality life can bring. Children playing at the water's edge, the serene beauty of a shaded place to contemplate, the fragrance of a flower...all combine to reflect what I feel are the truly important aspects of life.
All of my paintings are done on stretched canvas with the sides painted as the front to give an almost 3-D effect. Ie: no need to frame. Each painting is well suited for home or office décor. So, please come along with me on this adventure of life. I am here to tell you it is never too late to live your dream.
