Laura Fishman - Paintings
About me: I earned my Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting in the United States from the State University of New York where I studied figurative and abstract painting. I continued my studies in textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and earned an MA Fine Art at Middlesex University in London. I currently live and work in North London and am a certified GOLDEN Artist Educator.
About my work: My artistic vision is to connect with the viewer through the language of colour and paint, and to convey my experiences. Using an intuitive approach, I pour and drip paint onto supports using opaque and translucent layers. The results produce surfaces that are beautifully textured, sublimely multicoloured and visually engaging. Inspired by organic forms and the landscape along with a passion for exploring modern paint technology, I gravitate toward the abstract in art because it allows me freedom to interpret the world I see through my own creative lens.
I am happy to discuss commissions that suit specific requirements for your home or corporate interiors. I am also available to lead workshops, demonstrations and one to one tuition.
