Drawing inspiration from the natural world, Laura Roebuck seeks to translate her impressions onto paper and canvas. It's the abstraction of detail as she paints that lends itself to the whole of each piece. Color, pattern, and form come together to create an image that can be viewed as literal while maintaining the incommunicable quality of the abstract. Laura and her sister-in-law, Kate, are the creative duo behind BowerBird, an online studio and shop where they show and sell their work. A southern girl with roots in Georgia, Laura and her family live a farm life on Lookout Mountain where she is spoiled daily with the abundance of life in the woods.
