I am Laura, a Dutch artist living in Barcelona, Catalonia. Painting is my passion, so i am happy to be able to make a living painting. Under the sun of the inspiring Gaudi- city, where different cultures meet for a beer or a coffee and exchange artistic ideas, lifestyles, jokes and political views. I couldn't wish for more.
My paintings are on display in galleries of Carré d'Artistes (last year in Amsterdam and now also in Philadelphia USA) and in Le Capricorne in Saint Paul de Vence, France. And i frequent art fairs.
Although i did paint pots and pans, hills and houses (very few though), my main theme is always people. They do not stop to fascinate me, with the landscapes of their lives engraved in their faces.
I like to mix materials and play with collage, spray paint and new textures such as liquid glass. People's lives are really never boring, and i want my paintings to be adventures alike.
