My name’s Laura and I’m from Delaware, USA. Painting and photography go hand-in-hand for me. I study composition, light and motion through the lens and then carry what I’ve learned to my easel.
Most of the photos that I take eventually lead to paintings and act as reference shots that I tape to the walls of my studio where I can glance to them as I work.
I rely on my iPhone camera to collect bits of inspiration throughout my day that I share on Instagram and lug out the Canon 5D Mark III for more organized shoots with models or to capture nature from a distance.
I try to keep my workspace simple and at this point do not find that I have a need for much gear. What I have shown here is generally lined up on my shelf or studio table with the rest of my art tools where they are readily accessible.
