About The Artist

Laura Taylor
veteran, artist, instructor

I am a US Navy veteran who has proudly served and loves her county.

As an artist, I have been creating paintings and drawings in a variety of mediums since 1988.

I have been selling commissioned art since 2010 and instructing classes since 2014.

I have always had a passion for the arts, and I am so fortunate to have my art be such a large part of my life.

I have had the privilege of studying at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, Oxnard College and Brown Institute, where I received my degree in Visual Communications.

I draw what I See… and when I SEE, I draw!

My medium as an artist

Acrylic, Pen and Ink, Art Marker, Pencil, Charcoal, Water Color, Oil, Collage… I have even been known to drop my paint brush into a glass of Merlot too. I love them all. 🙂

I have, however; found a huge love for Art Marker. My guess is it all started when I became a mother and life became….interesting. Art Marker was a medium that I could pick up and put down when ever needed. I have always gravitated to black and white pieces, so this just took a natural fit to me.

Commissioned Art

Art has so much emotion in it, and when I am able to share this with another person or family, it just doesn’t get much better than that.

Have an old photo you want to capture the memory of?  Looking for a portrait of your family or pet?
Contact me.

All of my work is quoted individually and based on subject matter, medium and size of piece. All completed work also comes with a Signed Certificate of Authenticity.  (So when I am all big and famous, you will receive a nice return on your investment…hehehe)

Patriotic Work

As a Navy Veteran, proud daughter of a Vietnam Veteran and with several Grandparents, Great Uncles (and Great Aunts), In-Laws, Uncles and Aunts and many Cousins who have all Served or are still Proudly Serving, Patriotism runs strong in our family.

With that said, my work has a tendency to show my love for our country, our flag, the fallen and for those who serve or have served. I guess you could say this girl is one proud American. 🙂
