Laura Poinsette – mixed media artist
I deal in daydreams, portraying nature in an imagined tone. Living in Montana, I do not have to go much farther than my backdoor to find inspiration. The healthy ecology provides unlimited source material to reengineer in playful and peculiar ways. My work is a tribute to the small wonders that animate and keep us curious.
