Humor, pop culture, graffiti, kitsch, abandoned store fronts and convenient stores are a few inspirations for Laura Fortune. A gal who grew up in a colorful house in the southern United States, made a colorful home in Brooklyn, NY, and now sees it connect through her travels. She lived in NYC for 13 years and packed it up to travel and continues to make work where she lands.
Laura received her BFA in Metal from SUNY New Paltz and while in school began working in the studios of J.Cotter and Annette Ferdinandsen, and continued working professionally in NYC in the studios of TenThousandThings and Ted Muehling.
Laura currently travels with her studio and is making her homebase in Lisbon, Portugal.
