Laura Fishman

About Laura

Since my early devotion to painting, I’ve been motivated by a love of nature and a fascination with paint as a material. My paintings feature colour, texture and movement, using techniques to create surfaces that are reminiscent of dynamic patterns and flow in nature. I gravitate toward the abstract in art because it allows me the freedom to interpret the world I see through my own creative lens.


My Work

Laura earned her BFA in Painting in her native United States from the State University of New York at New Paltz. It was here she studied with abstract expressionist Joop Sanders, friend and apprentice of Willem de Kooning, and the founder of the American Abstract Expressionism group. She also studied with Hudson Valley landscape 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 earning an AAS degree in Textile Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and earned her MA Fine Art at Middlesex University, London. She remains active with artist communities, exhibitions and associations in the United Kingdom, Europe and in the United States. Laura currently lives and works in London, is a GOLDEN Art Materials Educator and is Art Curator at Stephens House & Gardens, Finchley.

Laura's work can be found in private and corporate collections in the United Kingdom, the United States, Israel, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
Corporate collections include: The Miles Partnership, UK, and The Lint Group, UK.

Laura is happy to discuss commissions to create works that suit specific requirements for your home or corporate interiors.
Laura will be selling her work at 9 Windermere Ave, Finchley, at the  EFO Open Houses 2022
