Workshops: Laura is available to lead workshops, demos & private tuition. www.laurafishmanworkshops.blogspot.co.uk
Laura Fishman earned her BFA (cum laude) in Painting in her native United States from the State University of New York. It was here she studied with abstract expressionist Joop Sanders, friend and apprentice of Willem de Kooning, and the founder of the American Abstract Expressionism group. The influence of her education can be seen in her abstract works, which are characterized by their use of bold colour and her intuitive style. She continued her studies in Fashion and Textile Design at FIT, New York and earned her MA Fine Art at Middlesex University, London.
Laura’s primary motivation has been her love of materials and the natural world. Laura gravitates toward the abstract in art because it allows her the freedom to interpret the world she sees through her own creative lens. She remains active with artist communities, exhibitions and associations around the UK, Europe and in the United States. She is a certified GOLDEN Paint Artist Educator and is Art Curator at Stephens House & Gardens, Finchley.
Laura's work can be found in private and corporate collections in the UK, USA, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East.
Laura is happy to discuss commissions that suit specific requirements for your home or corporate interiors.
