Laurel’s work represents her vision and spirit and if the dancing dogs, Cats, bears and bunnies are any indication, that spirit is a tad whimsical. “Life is often way too serious” I want my pieces to lift the viewer and take them to a better place for a timeless moment. Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone smile and laugh with my work.”
Laurel’s work draws on her love of figurative expression and the freedom of impressionistic interpretation. Not to mention the love of dogs. Dancing dogs builds on her ability to observe and capture motion in clean lines.
Laurel is a classically trained sculptor. As a former repeat director of the board for the La Scuola Classical Sculpture School, she keeps one eye on the masters and the other on the present.
