LAURA LLOYD FONTAINE | 11 Images

Laura's studio looks over the lowcountry marsh of Charleston, S.C. When the tide is high, she paddles through the narrow creeks and marsh grass and into the Charleston Harbor. It is from this vantage point, close to the water in her kayak, that the bones of her landscape paintings emerge.

Laura refers to her painting style as “contemporary impressionism with a traditional flair.” Working with oil glazes over a textured surface, she creates soft but crisp paintings that shine with color and invite the viewer in.

Laura graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art at Hollins College and continued her studies at the Philadelphia College of Art. Today she paints large, softly abstracted marsh scenes and seascapes that capture her love of water and nature.
