Laura T. Wilson has been a creative all her life. Born and raised in Far Rockaway, NY, she got her love of art from her mother, Veronica. In addition to painting, Laura draws, writes poetry and has an expertise in various crafts such as crochet and Pysanky (Ukrainian style dyed eggs). She has been a digital artist for well over 20 years and holds a degree in Digital Media Communications.
In 2020, Laura began painting regularly after a long hiatus. Painting helped her maintain her sanity through the pandemic and even more so after the tragic loss of her mother to cancer.
Laura's goal is to create beautiful, meaningful, and inclusive artwork that depicts people of color in a positive and powerful light. She attributes her strength and determination to succeed to her four younger siblings and her three beautiful children.
Her first oil painting, Auset Alqamar (Isis of the Moon) was proudly on display at Grand Rapids City Hall during the annual ArtPrize competition September 16 - October 3, 2021.
Laura currently lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
