HOMETOWN: Durango, CO

Education: BFA, Montana State University, MT

Laurel came north to study fine art at MSU in 2001 and never left. When she’s not painting or touring the countryside with her work, she engages her wine nerd as a sommelier and wrangles two wild curly-haired toddlers.

Artist Statement:

I am inspired by creatures large and small, wild and wild-hearted. My southwestern roots include Native American, Mexican and Cowboy cultures, all of which deeply influence my love and exploration of color theory and painting.
