Laura Robinson grew up riding and drawing horses at her home in Southern California. Sketching on any piece of paper she could find, she drew her favorite subject, the horse. She has always felt a deep connection with horses, and has been very blessed to have them in her life.
Winning awards in high school and college for art and design, it was evident that she should pursue the arts. So, after moving to Minneapolis, MN and getting married, she studied and worked in the graphic design field. Then, while raising a family of 3, she moved onto the fine arts. She currently works as a portrait artist and muralist. Her local horse community is enjoying their commissioned portraits of their beloved horses. She tries to learn something new from every painting she does, always trying to better her skills as an artist.
In addition to her art, she works as a groom and assistant trainer at a busy boarding stable, riding hunter/jumpers and dressage. In her “spare” time she landscapes her yard, mends fences, builds her own chicken coop, rides with her daughter, tries to keep up with her sons, and helps her husband with his electrical business! She finds that a little time in the barn is the best therapy in the world. The sweet smell of a horse’s breath, and a nicker from an old friend is very soothing and inspirational.
