Laura Lovera

Portfolio

My paintings develop, evolve, and more often than not completely change direction from my starting point. I aspire to make art that is uplifting and joyful.

The pieces I create are like my children, dear to me...

About the Artist

Laura is a self-taught artist. Born and raised in the small town of Ica, Peru, Laura developed a love for art as a child. As a young girl, she made art from various mediums and realized a natural talent. In 1983, she immigrated to the United States to seek greater opportunities for herself and her infant son. The early years in Seattle proved to be a time of great personal growth as she moved to the United States without knowing how to speak English. Needing to provide for her family, her artistic endeavors were put on hold while she worked and became a citizen.

In the last few years Laura renewed her love for art and started painting again. Without formal training, she took inspiration from her surroundings and her passion for life, texture, and bold color. Her abstract paintings are unique, not being made with traditional tools but instead with everyday objects such as spatulas and silverware. By combining her use of tools with her love for experimenting with color, she has developed a unique style. Like her art, Laura strives to be an individual.

She lives in Seattle, has two sons, and works as a banker. But painting has always been her passion.

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you. I am here to live out loud.
