Artist, Worker, Mother, Singer/Songwriter Laura Parker is a Fine Artist currently living on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. She is by nature, an abstract Mixed Media painter. She works with a wide variety of mixed media paints and materials. She creates abstract constructions on Canvas, Paper, Wood, and Glass.
Laura began her Arts journey in the mid-1970s as a Singer/Songwriter and Recording Artist. She worked in Musical Theatre as both Singer and Modern/Jazz dancer. Her desire to push and explore rhythmic expression led her to begin work with mixed media in 2000. It was then she became a student of painting and drawing under nationally known Atlanta artist, Chery Baird, at the Spruill Center for the Arts in Atlanta. In 2008 Laura relocated to Charlottesville, Virginia, where she was juried into the renowned McGuffey Center for the Arts as a Resident Artist. Laura has shown in galleries in the Southeast and has expanded private collections, internationally. She continues to write and record songs with Atlanta-based writers and musicians.

My work has been driven by my curiosity, always asking questions, and an endless pursuit to answer them: whether in scientific pursuits, philosophical and theological inquiries, explorations of humanity and nature, and the Arts.
I am fundamentally an optimist who is sensitive to the complexity and limitation of our thrown existence in this world and at the ways in which our culture and constructs have dared to define us. I feel life deeply, think and talk and reflect on my experiences continually, while at the same time submit them to logical analysis. Over the years I have learned to trust my logic, reason, and intuition, guided by my moral and spiritual thinking. In this mix, I enjoy to represent what I find truly amazing while leaving room for the mysterious and the unexpected to emerge.
