Laura has always had an affinity for animals. This passion was shared with her father as a child growing up in the foothills at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains on the central California coast. During her adult years, she continued to have horses, cats, and several breeds of dogs along the way. All very much loved. Most particularly appreciated was a lovely tri colored sheltie named Fala. Fala taught her the true depths of the connection possible between man and dog. But, when Laura discovered the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel during the summer of 1991, she knew that she had found perfection, so far as she was concerned.
Her desire is to create artistic interpretations that embody the character of these alluring creatures that is very evident as we observe them and share our lives with them, but becomes elusive when attempting to capture their unique personalities in artistic expression.
