Laura Lehman is an American artist living in London. She finds subjects from a number of sources, such as reading and beavering about towns and cities that she lives in and visits. She loves working from life and has models and family members pose for her.
Drawing is very important in how Laura explores and builds up subject matter.
This is a way of thrashing out all subject matter. The sculptural quality of charcoal drawing is integral to Laura’s work. Colour and Line are also important to her.
She regards each piece of her work as a one-off.
Laura works mainly from the figure and gets ideas from books which she develops into work done over a period of time. Many things contribute to each of her pieces of work.
Work is a part of Laura’s life, with all sorts of interests, from politics to history and architecture. All these are important aspects to Laura’s ways of working.
