Laura has always appreciated the fact that she received formal music training at the age of seven. She loves opera. At 13, she had a role in the Santa Fe Operaís performance of The Magic Flute. She was the seventh hump of the dragon. Theatrics aside, she was a serious student of the flute and viola. At sixteen her musical accomplishments secured her a position with the All American Youth Honor Musicians. The European tours were the highlight of her teen years.
She continues to use musical terms to describe her life and work. Her years of raising a family were alegre; quick and lively. After moving to the Northwest, Laura studied metalsmithing at Oregon College of Art and Craft. An overwhelming desire to get more color in her work guided her determination to discover the techniques necessary for creating fine art micromsaics. Laura is a self-taught glass artist and is credited with reviving the lost fine art of micromosaic.
"Now is the
Andante," she states, a movement in moderate time but flowing easily,
gracefully like her passion for her micromosaic
art. "Aside from my love of family," she states," I canít imagine making anything else
my lifeís work."
