Laura is a painter artist born in Toronto, Ontario and moved to Mississauga almost 30 years ago to raise her family. She began as a decorative wall painter, but an illness pointed her to what has become a life-long passion for Chinese Brush Painting. Unlike faux finishing; it can be done without much physicality.
Laura is an internationally recognized Chinese Brush Painter and is an official member of the Sumi-E Artists of Canada and most recently won the Martys 2017 award for established artist. She has studied under master artist, Baoxing Zhang, paints impressions of the Canadian landscape while respecting this ancient art form.
Laura has been invited as part of a group exhibition of Canadian (non-Chinese) artists exhibiting their work in touring museums in China in August/September 2018. She will be the keynote speaker representing the Canadian contingent.
