Laura Lewis Description

 

 

LAURA LEWIS (b. 1954)

 

Laura Lewis quickly noticed her interest in art when a self portrait assignment in the third grade depicted her gift for drawing. Pursuing artistic education throughout her adolescence, Lewis was fortunate to study portraiture under renowned artist Glenna Goodacre.

At the beginning of her college years, Lewis majored in art but later changed her field of study in health sciences. She graduated with a degree in the health sciences and had a long career in the medical field. However, throughout her years as a medical employee, her artistic passion did not disappear and Lewis continued to paint portraits, learn print making techniques, and study with accomplished artists such as Paul Milosevich and Carroll Collier. Lewis has been a full-time professional artist since 2001, and continues to study through workshops with artists such as George Strickland, Matt Smith, and Camille Przwodek.

Lewis states that portraying the rugged beauty of the High Plains of Texas is her most gratifying challenge. She focuses her artistic gift on successfully conveying the grandeur of the Texas landscape to her audiences.
