Laura F. Theriot, a New Orleans based painter and illustrator, draws deeply on inspiration from Louisiana nature, people, and her childhood. Each painting or drawing captures a moment in time and is a representation of how that memory feels. Symbolism is a critical component across her collection of work. Subtle personal allegory pierces each piece while allowing a large audience to feel their own connection. Almost every piece that Laura creates begins as a quick scribble of a note jotted in her worn journal that is,over time, built in layers until it is ready to be presented as a work of art.
