Interests and Personality

BiographyHi, my name is Laura and I've been painting since I was 9. I was taught for several years by Margaret Hartshorne (nee. Horner)who was educated at the Glasgow School of Art. I had my first exhibition when I was 14, sold when I was 16, and then abandoned an education in "art" out of the sheer frustration with contemporary "ideas" and "communicating meaning". I value the tradition of developing artistic skill through chosen mediums: of communicating through skill, not through ideas. I fear the appreciation of art will disappear under the heading of "visual philosophy" and one of my life goals is to pass on the skill of painting, and of the pure appreciation for visuals without the noise of self-satisfying ideas.
InterestsI love being in the outdoors, being active, and of course painting. The outdoors, however, does not always love me or my painting, so generally I have to retreat indoors to finish painting with a very sunburnt face!

Beautiful ART Leverett.

What you say in your biography section is bang on. Artists should showcase technical skills and not sideline them. Just the desire to create and to be an artist does not automatically make you an artist. I think you have painted some accomplished pictures and I admire your intelligence and depth.
