Laura Levine was born in 1956 in New York City. She has always been an artist and has been painting for as long as she can remember.
Working from life she enjoys painting the landscape, still life and portrait and any combination of the three. She prefers to work directly from life. Keenly observing the colors in nature she is able to portray the world around her with passion and joy. Although drawing is an essential component, it is the color that brings her work to life. Living on the Connecticut shoreline, she has spent decades fascinated by the tidal marshes and the surrounding trees, blossoms and structures. With the constant change in seasons this area has provided her with a wealth of inspiration.
Her paintings have been exhibited extensively in solo and group exhibitions throughout New York and New England. She has won awards and was invited to exhibit her paintings at the Capital and Legislative Offices, in Hartford, CT.
She received her BFA from SUNY at Purchase, New York. She then studied in New York City at the New Brooklyn School of Life Drawing, Painting and Sculpture, which later became The New York Academy of Art.
