Laura Carter
Kemptville, Canada

It's the messy things in life that attract Laura Carter. In a literal sense, she enjoys making a mess with paint by using her hands and fingers in each work. She finds that most of her best work springs from difficult times. Her current work explores a range of emotions and facial expressions through portraits. In the end, she hopes that her art will "look and feel like an emotional story or journey." Fun fact: as an avid art collector, she has filled almost all the empty spaces on her walls.

Laura Carter 9/16/2016 | 12:15 PM

Hi Frank, so nice to hear from you! I am happy to hear you like "You Say I'm Crazy" It's one of my all time favourites! Yes it will come ready to hang with wire! Thanks so much, Laura

commentsYou Say I'm Crazy
Frank 9/16/2016 | 11:49 AM

Hi again Laura- I'm back and I really like your "You Say I'm Crazy" work of art. Just checking to make sure it comes ready to hang with a wire before I order it- Thanks, Frank

Laura Carter 2/10/2015 | 11:25 PM

Wow, thank you so much Beverly for the kind words! I love your description of her, you have really summed up every emotion that went into her creation! Your words make me very happy and inspire me!!

B Gossett 2/10/2015 | 5:21 PM

Laura, It has been a while since I purchased "Waiting on the Day," I have been getting to know the subject. I have her sitting in my kitchen, we have our coffee and other beverages together. At first glance one may think she is fragile, but her strength is stunning. At times she looks wistful, other times hurt and angry, but mostly vengeful, I pity the soul. You do fabulous work!

Laura Carter 1/24/2015 | 6:29 PM

Hi Shelley, Thank you so much for your message! I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know how the painting made you feel. It's a response like that which really inspires my work! It makes me extremely happy to hear from you. :) All the best, Laura

S Mathis 1/24/2015 | 6:12 PM

Hi Laura, Your piece, Weight of the World, has arrived and is wonderful. Thank you so much for creating a piece expressing a thought provoking mix of emotions…somber, wistful, lonely to name a few. The picture online really doesn't do it justice. It is beautiful. I'm thinking of buying your new piece on here to go with it!

Laura Carter 1/12/2015 | 12:55 PM

Hi Frank, I am so happy to hear that! Thank you so much for letting me know. All the best, Laura

Frank 1/12/2015 | 12:30 PM

Dear Laura- I just received "House on the Ridge 11" and it was wonderful, just fitting into an elongated space in my art room and adding perfect coloring and style. I have the utmost in praise for your work and will be back for more. Cheers, Frank

Laura Carter 1/3/2015 | 12:42 PM

You are very welcome Frank, thank YOU for supporting my art! Laura

Frank 1/3/2015 | 8:34 AM

Thank you Laura for the quick response and you helped me climb the fine art learning curve. I will now order "House on top of the ridge". Cheers, Frank

Laura Carter 1/2/2015 | 6:07 PM

Hi Frank, Happy New Year to you as well. Thank you so much for your compliments! Yes the other versions you found are prints only that I sell through that print company. The painting here is the original piece and only available exclusively through Ugallery. Thanks for your interest in my work! Laura

Frank 1/2/2015 | 3:55 PM

Hi Laura- I am new to both fine art and more recent, Ugallery. Having looked thru every available artwork in Ugallery, yours stood out as being one of the best!!! Now may I ask a question- I really like the striking "House on top of the ridge" which is described as an original one of the kind. I also found a website of yours on the internet which has that artwork in canvas, as an art print and also framed. All versions are far less exensive and I assume they are strictly prints of one type of another. Probably a silly question but I hope the one offered on ugallery is THE one and only original of the House on top of the ridge? Please confirm. I love the painting and the size in particular fits exactly in a location that I wish to put it. Thank you for your time and a Happy New Year. Cheers, Frank

Laura Carter 12/5/2014 | 12:23 PM

Thank you! I love your description of her, she is indeed very haunting. Thank you so much for your purchases!

B Gossett 11/28/2014 | 4:12 PM

Hope and Flowers, if I lean close enough she will share her soul. She is beautiful and haunting.
