Laura Lawson Allee

Laura is an oil painter who paints both en plein air and in her studio. She creates landscapes, portraits, and still life paintings that capture the beauty of fleeting moments.

Laura has been painting since she was 5, but only in recent years has she become a full-time professional artist. Influenced by her culturally rich childhood in Laredo, Texas, where her grandparents moved from Mexico to the US in the early twentieth century, she is inspired by the stories and recollections of her extended family.

Laura has studied with various artists including Matt Smith, Carolyn Anderson, Zhaoming Wu, Dawn Whitelaw, and Derek Penix. She has also participated in many workshops and in art conventions in Washington DC, California, and Arizona. One of the greatest influences on her art career has been her late teacher and mentor, Angie Banta Brown of New Braunfels, Texas.

Laura’s worldly travels and experiences are what make her art unique. She has visited Rome, Paris, Sydney, Madrid and London, and is inspired by the locales and the art she has seen in her travels, visiting museums, galleries, and studios.

Laura’s art has sold in galleries, through commissioned works, and is collected internationally.

The artist lives in the Texas Hill Country on her secluded ranch, where she paints frequently with friends.
