Laura Lynne uses cut papers of all types to create bold, colorful, whimsical mixed-media art. Her art training (first at UW-Madison, then graduating with a BFA from UW-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts) shows a sharp eye for color theory and elaborate compositions. For the artworks, she uses a variety of papers, including tissue, wrapping, magazine, and handmade.
Some of Laura’s influences include the following: yoga, dreams, nature, Murakami, Roald Dahl, Frida Kahlo and other Surrealists, Yayoi Kusama, Mid-Century Modern Art and Design, Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, Charley Harper, poster design, Modernisme, Antoni Gaudi, Frank Lloyd Wright, Pierre Bonnard, Klimt, Kay Neilson, Julie Andrew’s voice, fishing tales, Goonies, and local artists Esther Aron and Cindy Sampson.
