I love the colour combination of this painting, the paint was put on with a palette knife and then in some spots I smoothed and stippled the area with my fingers. I love doing figurative work with a palette knife--it allows more creative freedom.

Getting to Know Laura

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.
