Based in Evergreen, Colorado, Laura Mehmert paints, sculpts, and teaches her artistic methods.

Laura has been painting and teaching watercolor classes for more than 20 years. She studied at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, as well as with several nationally acclaimed artists. She taught art classes at the Bountiful/Davis Art Center in Bountiful, Utah and displayed her art during faculty shows. Her art has graced the cover of the Equine Affaire 2008/2009 program as well as the cover of the Mountain Communities phone directory.

Laura also displayed her work in the juried Loveland Sculpture Show, at the Ramon Research Fund for the Morris Animal Foundation in Denver, at the Hiwan Museum in Evergreen. Laura's bronze sculpture will be placed at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Anschutz-Fitzsimmons campus.

Laura continues a lifelong love affair with drawing and painting. "My grandmother gave me a set of oil paints at age 8, and I've been painting ever since," Laura says.

Another of Laura's lifelong obsessions is the horse. She paints, draws, sculpts, and occasionally has a chance to ride horses near her mountain home. Horses are subjects in many of Laura's paintings.

Laura began teaching art in her home studio to share her love of art, animals, and wildlife. She has helped many students begin their own art careers. Her strong feelings about her work are contagious.

"Painting is a very personal expression of my perception of a particular moment. The painting must have spirit and substance and engage the viewer," Laura says. I work in both oil and watercolor, and love each for their unique qualities. I really don't favor one form over the other, but throw myself into whatever medium fits the subject I'm trying to portray--whether it's watercolor, oil, clay, or cloth. Art is a way of life for me, and I have to keep at it for a sense of balance in this fast-paced world. It is a never-ending source of joy to me."
