Welcome to my art world!I am Laura Kathleen, a Baltimore based artist on a mission to brighten spaces and FACES.
I was a certified stock broker when I recommitted to a lifelong passion of art-making!
My path has taken me so many amazing places ever since I followed my heart including teaching amazing and creative kids. I now have kids of my own and paint from my home studio.
While mostly self-taught, fine-art classes have helped enhance my natural love of color and shape experimentation.
On and off the canvas, I strive to cultivate courage, creativity, hope, and dream-chasing in others!
BEACH 2021 RELEASE MAY 15 2021
Inspired by a favorite vacation spot in Delaware, my new collection of beach pieces is ready to share! Find Your Beach is a carefree, bold take on life. This seemed the perfect style for a series of work that I desperately needed to paint as a celebration of gratitude for happy memories and hope of togetherness on the horizon.
The beach is more than just my cliché happy place. It is the place I gather with my family, where I create some of my best paintings, and where I feel most wrapped in love. Nothing says home like the first sign of beach umbrellas, lining the sand like a welcome committee. And taking one last peek at the dunes at the end of each day helps keep this peaceful feeling fresh.
On days that I missed family and friends, my mind would wander to happy times at the beach. From the smell of saltwater to the feeling of the sand on my feet, I missed it all and I knew I wasn’t alone.
I created this work so we could go back there anytime. I hope the tropical patterns and cheerful palette transport you to your peaceful place. Take a look around, close your eyes, and find your beach!
