Completed Buffalo Hide: Good Medicine
Ground earth pigments are mixed with natural bases and oils to produce her paints.
Hand crafted arrowheads, shells, feathers, are hand sewn, wrapped, and tied with sinew.
Genuine animal hides such as caribou, deer, elk and buffalo are used.
Native to Arizona, Laura has always been inspired by her surroundings. Traveling throughout the southwest in search of insight, her artistic expressions are a true reflection of her experiences. Her natural, rustic style and attention to detail are what make her art so unique and appealing
Mainly self-taught as an artist, Laura has been involved in creative activity for the past 30 years. Beginning with a career in the commercial/graphic arts industry, she has since evolved into fine crafts and painting. She has a Native American Cherokee ancestry, and her love of the natural world and spiritual devotion are echoed in her art.
Laura feels it is important that the materials used are as genuine and natural as possible. Hand crafted arrowheads, shells, feathers, and various trade beads are hand sewn, wrapped, and tied with sinew. Ground earth pigments are mixed with natural bases and oils to produce her paints. She feels that natural resources lend a sense of authenticity to her one-of-a-kind works.
I will be showing my hides during the Santa Fe Indian Market in the Eldorado Hotel on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd of August. Hope to see you there!
