Works of Laura Pinter

Artist’s statement:

Oils had been my primary medium until I became pregnant with my first son, who is now 2 1/2. At that time I began doing illustrative work in watercolors because of safety and practicality, but I also have always had an interest in children’s book illustration. I went to school for art with a concentration in painting, double majoring in psychology and subsequently earned my Masters in Social Work. I now work part-time as a therapist in a private practice and am working on creative projects in all the spare time I can muster with two young boys (2 1/2 and 9 months!). I will include some examples of my work in oils to give you an idea of my style. Some of these have been sold, but I feel they reflect my interests. Most currently, I am working on a series of smaller ( around 10 x 10 inch) somewhat abstracted landscapes that focuses on my interest in negative space, light, and subtle voyeurism..
