Artists in Our Aisles

Laura Eyring

I’m a Mt. Airy resident and painter. I had a show in September at Cerulean Arts gallery in Fairmount. I’m an alum of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (Class of ‘87). I work in oils — mostly landscapes that I paint from memory. I’m also illustrating my fourth children’s book.

To support my art habit, I work as a chemist for the Philadelphia Water Department in the water testing labs (I got my chemistry degree just before I turned 40).

Growing up in a family of musicians made me aware of patterns and rhythms. Finding the harmony in the design is what draws me to a specific subject.

My preliminary drawings tend to be traditional. I keep shapes and perspective realistic, looking for details that make the general structure playful and interesting.

My goal is to create a vivid kaleidoscope of colors and forms — blue trees, orange sky, hot pink fields — that remind me of a magical moment in time. That’s the feeling I experience when I’m in nature.
