Laura Atchinson is a contemporary artist based in 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 much of my time outdoors.

My love for nature comes across in my most recent pieces. The work incorporates a blend of materials from the more traditional to contemporary. In a way my art is a blend of my cultural studies, travels, and my love for exploring nature.”
