Sometimes we just need to express something.
About Laura Grace Rafferty
I’ve been an artist since I was a little girl, even if I didn’t understand the complexity and difficulty of this field until I was much older. I’ve always had a big imagination and a sense of creativity, and that innate personality trait has been the driving force towards my mastery of draftsmanship throughout my entire life.
It hasn’t been easy. I didn’t start out drawing the way I did, it was through over 30 years of study, practice, and dedication to my craft that I now excel in anatomy and light.
My focus for the first part of my life was just in getting things to look “right” – being able to accurately draw anything from life. This approach was a difficult one, but one I’m grateful for, as it has taught me to be able to express myself in any way I desire.
I still feel I’m a student. I’ve learned that there is no such thing as failure in art – but rather, a long journey of learning, experimentation, and trial and error have brought me to where I am today. And I’ll keep pushing to improve.
Now that I feel comfortable and confident in my own painting skills and my ability to self-improve, I am to push my own comfort level by pursuing subjects and mediums I have yet to explore. Namely, my goal is to be an adept coloring book illustrator and a kinetic sculptor in the next 10 years.
Other goals are in subject matter: animals and creatures, perspective studies, wild landscapes, and more exotic fantasy are on my to-do list.
