Laura Atchinson is a contemporary artist based in Los Angeles, California.

“My work is generally inspired by the world around us. In the past I did a lot of work focusing on cultural history and archaeology, but lately I have spent more time looking to nature. In addition to painting, I spend a lot of time outdoors.

My love for nature comes across in my most recent pieces. However, instead of turning to my more traditional art materials, such as watercolors and oils, I am currently using materials that are considered street art. In a way it is a blend of my cultural studies, the city in which I live, and my passion for being in nature.”
