Livermore Art Association Gallery guest artist, Laura Marion has been painting since she could hold a brush. Although portraiture is her favorite genre, Laura has honed her craft over the last 15 years as a commission artist. She works primarily in water-based oil paints although she enjoys acrylics, water-color, chalk pastel, graphite, scratch art, and pen and ink.

Laura grew up in Northern California but now lives in LosAngeles. She makes frequent trips to Livermore, her home town. When she’s not painting, she’s a singer in two bands, Ivory Deville and The Walcotts.

Laura’s work can be seen currently at The Big White House Winery and John Evan Cellars, 6800 Greenville Road Livermore, where she is the resident label artist.

Her paintings will be on view at the Livermore Art Association Gallery June 18 through October 5.

The Gallery is located in the Carnegie Building, 2155 Third St., Livermore; 449-9927; www.livermoreartassociation.org/laa-gallery.html
