Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to have in its current Artist Showcase Laura Warburton. Laura has entered several of the gallery’s competitions and each time has been awarded for her work.
Laura is a Toronto, based artist who creates art through the use of color, texture and imagination. Her edict is that a composition is merely a vague idea, not fully envisioned, until the piece itself emerges with the artist’s assistance. Her work reflects movement across or through the canvas.
After 20+ dynamic years in the medical field, she decided to embrace her creative side and took the leap into the role of a full time artist. Laura had been painting part time since the mid 2000’s and the more that she painted, she could feel the benefits of this creative outlet within her soul. Laura states that “serendipitously my formal education in psychology/human sciences fields has been a great accompaniment to my work as an artist via the use and understanding of color, flow, visual perception and human personality.
Laura goes on to further state that “brushing, carving, scraping and pouring various materials, gels and mediums on canvas aids in creating an organic textured feel that hopefully captures and holds the viewer’s eye. Painting and paintings are emotional to me. I believe that when you walk into a room and you notice the art on the walls… and you really want to” look” at it… then you are in front of a great a piece of art.” “it is not about what you look at , it is about what you feel”
Laura Warburton has an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and is a member of CARFAC: Canadian Artists Representation. She is founder and owner of Loft Artwork, an art concept celebrating large modern abstract paintings. Laura just recently opened a solo Loft Artwork Studio/Gallery, located in the historic Distillery District, Toronto.
