Laura Lark earned an MFA in Painting, an M.A. in Creative Writing / Literature and a B.A. in English and American Literature from the University of Houston.
Laura explains her work by saying, “As an artist and writer, I find that with each body of work I am trying to create a personal narrative. Large, obsessive works reflect memories of teenage angst, ennui, and loneliness; a hand drawn ground of psychedelic patterns—memories of fabrics and posters from my youth—surrounds isolated figures. And figures in some works, although based on personal photos or magazines that my mother used to thumb through, become facets of my persona, both real and imagined: the entitled white suburbanite; the whiny victim; the bold, independent outsider/warrior; the accident-prone geek; and the empty woman who does nothing but stuff her face, only seeking comfort.”
