Laura Fishman Bio

Laura Fishman

Artist Statement
Since my early devotion to painting, my primary motivation has been nature and the world around me. With bold brushstrokes, drips and pours, I connect with the viewer through the language of colour and paint. I gravitate toward the abstract in art because it allows me the freedom to interpret the world I see through my own creative lens.

About the Artist
Laura earned her BFA in Painting in her native United States from the State University of New York. It was here she studied with abstract expressionist Joop Sanders, friend and apprentice of Willem de Kooning, and with Hudson River Valley artist, Alex Martin. She continued her studies in textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York and earned her MA Fine Art at Middlesex University, London. She remains active with artist communities, exhibitions and associations in the United Kingdom, Europe and in the United States. Laura currently lives and works in London, is a GOLDEN Artist Educator and is art curator at Stephens House & Gardens, Finchley.

Laura's work can be found in private and corporate collections in the United Kingdom, the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Middle East.
