LAURA FISHMAN

LAURA FISHMAN

BFA Painting, New York / MA Fine Art, London
Abstract Painting

Laura’s paintings feature dynamic use of colour, texture and movement, which is inspired by a love of nature and a passion for paint as a material. Her techniques include dripping and pouring paint, mimicry of flow and organic patterns in nature.  Embracing the viscous properties of acrylic paint, Laura has found it to be an exciting material for experimentation and innovation. Laura received her BFA (cum laude) in Painting in her native United States in New York. It was here she studied with mentor Joop Sanders, apprentice of Willem de Kooning, both founding
members of the American Abstract Expressionist Group. The influence of her education can be seen in the bold and intuitive style of her work.


She continued her studies in textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York and earned her MA Fine Art at Middlesex University, London. She remains active with artist communities, exhibitions and associations in the United Kingdom, Europe and in the United States. Laura currently lives and works in London and is art curator at
Stephens House & Gardens, Finchley.
