Artist's Statement: Drawing inspiration from the natural world, Laura Roebuck seeks to translate her impressions onto paper and canvas. She enjoys the abstraction of detail as she paints that lends itself to the whole of each piece. Color, pattern, and form come together to create an image that can be viewed as literal while maintaining the incommunicable quality of the abstract. The act of mark making in itself is joy.
Laura is a southern girl with roots in Georgia. As a child, her family fostered creativity and an inquiring mind for nature and its curiosities. She attended the University of Georgia where she earned her B.F.A. in Painting. Laura has since been exploring the expansive world of art, medium, and subject while growing her family at home. She, her husband, Jed, and their three boys live a farm-life on the back of Lookout Mountain where they are spoiled daily with the abundance life in the woods.
