Laura John derives great joy by creating works of art that are whimsical and full of unexpected color. She likes to have a variety of colors on her brush. Sometimes it makes for a surprisingly interesting blend of color.
Laura was born in Oak Park, Illinois; moved to Florida as a child; was educated at Broward Community College, Dade Community College and the University of Florida. After raising five children (and two husbands) she spends every day painting and playing the piano. "How could I ask for a better life?" Although portraits are her specialty, her range of style is astonishing. Loose landscapes, children in the mountains, people, floral, fauna, whimsical bears, cannot escape the artistic expression within Laura's brush.
“Everywhere I look I see a painting. I can’t wait to put it on canvas so others can enjoy it.”
