Thanks so much for being here! Check out my website.

Artist Statement:
Nature serves as both the content and a force in my process. I am interested in natural patterns and spontaneous gestures of occurrence. Using the spectrum between analytical and intuitive processes, I approach every piece as a drawing and explore organic imagery.

Light, in it's ephemeral and intrinsic properties, is an important inspiration for me. Glass, silver, and watercolor are some of the materials which drive me as I interpret transient shapes such as shadows, water formations, and land mass.

Bio:
Hello!! 
I'm Laura.  I live and work in Philadelphia as a fine artist, specializing in architectural glass, chemical processes, and metal work.  I am represented by Massey Klein Gallery in the lower east side of Manhattan and exhibited a solo show there through Winter 2017-18.  My work is also represented to corporate spaces through various consulting firms throughout the country.  To stabilize my income, I have been working on a new line of design merchandise, teaching workshops, and making commercial prints.  Since all of these projects are new and still taking shape, the Patreon site is a way for my supporters to contribute, be a part of what I'm doing, and receive cool rewards in return.  To learn more about my efforts in these projects, you can check out my blog here!

Tiers
Bronze
$1 or more per month
-Access to patron only posts and periodic emails, including photos and a written description of my work's development.  These updates are more personal and go beyond the polished look of my instagram.  I'll be sharing more of the grit, struggles, and thought behind what I do.

-Access to exclusive process videos (pattern time-lapse, welding videos, painting process, etc) *at least two per month*




Silver
$4 or more per month

All bronze benefits PLUS:

-A little something sent to you from the studio (a sketch from a large project, a cut-out from a watercolor painting, a print prototype, etc).  These snippets from the studio are very special to me, as they are an important part of my process in which I string my thoughts together.  I'm very excited to be able to share them with those who are supporting me!


OR: Silver Patrons are welcome to take part in the Accrual and Redemption Program. This program is a great option for those who are looking to start building an art collection.  Each month, $4 will be added to your account.  I will keep track of your total, and you can redeem your patron funds for a gifted piece of art at whatever time you choose.  The longer you wait, the bigger the piece of art!

Once you've received your first gift, your account will start building funds back from the beginning, and so on!


Gold
$9 or more per month

All bronze and silver benefits PLUS:

-A small piece of merchandise either for YOU or your GIFT inventory.  Some examples include: A pack of four hand-made blank cards with brown paper envelopes, a small tea towel from the design brand, a small print, etc.  I'll try to keep you surprised!
