Laura Van Horne


I create art because I have to.  I am driven by curiosity and gather inspiration from a variety of places:  nature, photography, humor, and everyday objects.  I enjoy many styles of painting and use a variety of challenging, innovative mediums and materials to create abstract art. 

Laura Van Horne is a mixed-media artist who works in encaustic, acrylic, watercolor, ink, resin, paper and textiles.  She was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and moved to Seattle, WA in 1994.  She has her MA in Speech Pathology, and has studied acrylic and encaustic painting at Pratt Fine Art Center in Seattle, WA. 

Since childhood, Laura has been passionate about art. When she is not creating on canvas, she is creating in her head.  Her body of work includes a wide range of styles and mediums.  Many of her pieces are mixed media and include found organic objects, textiles, pages from books, or items from flea markets.

Laura has participated in a number of group and solo art shows over the past 20 years.  She presently paints and teaches out of Gray Sky Gallery, her Seattle studio/gallery space.
