Paper size: 16" x 20"

Laurel was a self-taught painter. She saw herself as a folk artist, telling stories. “In our fast-paced, changing world,” she said, “we need symbols that are a reminder of the ongoing world of the spirit.” On some level, her work was always about bringing different cultures together, and about our connection with the earth and all living things, ideas that have only increased in relevance today. Laurel said, “I refuse to have anything in my life that I can’t turn around into something magical and beautiful. I just refuse.”
There is an inner strength in her figures, with their bold lines and sinuous curves, and something irrepressible in the explosion of her colors.
