About laura sommer
I graduated from Bretton Hall College, of Leeds University, England with a B.A (Hons) in Fine Art. I now live and work in Utah, USA. I have been on a long artistic journey where I have experimented and produced artwork in many different mediums, using many different techniques.
My most recent works are drawings using black pen, and sometimes they combine black pen and watercolor paint. This work has a high level of detail that embraces line, dots, pattern and texture. Prints and greetings cards of this technique are available in the Shop section, and feature animals, birds, flowers, insects, trees, and landscapes. There are also prints and greetings cards available that have a Utah theme.
I’m excited to announce the arrival of my debut book called ‘Animal A-Z’. It features the letters of the alphabet in bright colors, and the name of an animal of each letter. They are accompanied by a detailed pen drawing of each featured animal. This book can help any child to learn the alphabet. The book is available in the Shop section.
In the Gallery section, there are examples of artwork that I have created using mixed-media of watercolor paint, acrylic paint, gel transfer and sewn collages of painted papers. Some of these pieces are for sale. Please contact me if you would like to inquire about any of them.
My mission is to make the world a visually beautiful and inspiring place. I create things that will hopefully fill our hearts with awe and compassion, and with what connects us to the world around us.
If you have something in mind that you would like me to create, please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can discuss the artwork you would like me do for you. I have created many things including artwork for local musicians, artwork for a local university, portraits of pets and people and stitched and painted photos. I like to get involved in the local art community and am open to anything that comes my way. I look forward to hearing from you!
“Art is my life. I live and breathe it. It runs through my veins. It is my life support.”
