Laura Erekson 

Laura creates art that invites others to engage--mentally, emotionally, and even, at times, physically.  Her work examines broad themes (including time, nature, identity, and faith) while also being intensely personal, allowing viewers to feel intimately connected to the artist.  Each piece is grounded firmly in the medium, and she often explores the boundaries of the materials she is working with.    

 

Laura was born in Oakland, California and currently lives and works in Salt Lake City, Utah. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Brigham Young University in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Laura's work has been exhibited in Maryland, Virginia, Utah, New York City, and in the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
