Laura Dunn is a painter who lives and works in St. Simons Island, GA with her husband and 2 small children. Laura received her BA in Interior Design from Salem College with honors. Years spent working with design clients informs her use of color and texture to create emotion in each piece.
Influenced by a childhood spent in her parents' greenhouse business Laura’s latest works focus on florals and ferns with a child's-eye view perspective. Working with acrylics and oil pastel she uses the contrast between carefully blended details and abstract, movement filled backgrounds to give the subjects both softness and strength. Using color and marks Laura also channels the energy and exhilaration she feels when outside surrounded by the natural world.
Her works are held in various private collections across the country. Her work has been featured on the Candy Floss blog as well as in Shoutout Atlanta. Aside from her website, Laura's work can also be found at The Silver Maple Market in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and The Untamed Square Artist Collective.
