Laura Fishman

Laura Fishman Landscape artist of the year series

Laura’s paintings feature colour, texture and movement, using techniques such as pouring and layering paint. These processes create surfaces that are reminiscent of dynamic patterns and flow in nature. Using these techniques, she creates themed collections.  She gravitates toward the abstract in art because it allows her the freedom to interpret the world she sees through her own creative lens.

Laura earned her BFA in Painting in her native United States in New York. It was here she studied with abstract expressionist Joop Sanders, friend and apprentice of Willem and Elaine de Kooning, and the founder of the American Abstract Expressionism group. She also studied with Hudson River Valley artist Alex Martin, where her love of landscape painting was nurtured. The influence of her education can be seen throughout her works, with her use of bold colour and intuitive style. She continued her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and earned her MA Fine Art in London. She remains active with artist communities, exhibitions and associations in the United Kingdom, Europe and in the USA.
