Laura Lacambra Shubert
Plum-colored, juicy red wine in a paper-thin glass goblet, two bare feet pressed gently onto a water-glistened sandy beach, a sun-kissed façade of a French chalet, and the luminescent fire of a candle are just a few of the extensive subjects Laura Lacambra Shubert represents with her loose, yet splendidly elegant brushstrokes. Light and shadow perform as the key elements in each creation where strategic, yet seemingly effortless strokes of bright white acrylic paint depict an intense sunlight on sculpted outdoor boxwood. Shubert was born in Durham, North Carolina, raised in Florida and Spain, and at a young age chose art as a career. Laura received a B.F.A. from Southern Methodist University where she studied painting, drawing and printmaking.“I like art that can communicate to people who don’t have a doctorate in art history. Anyone can feel or get something from my paintings. I’m seeking an intuitive and emotional response from the viewer.” Laura Lacambra Shubert resides in Winter Park, Florida.
Splendid bright colors with layers of patterns and light produce florals and occasionally figures and landscapes that take an otherwise traditional subject and breathe new life into it. Erin paints in acrylic and occasionally in oil almost daily in her home studio.
Erin has been fascinated by art as far back as she can remember. As a child, art was always the highlight of the school day. She knew from an early age that she would be an artist when she grew up. Upon graduating from Auburn University with a BFA in painting in 2000. Erin views each day as an adventure and a blessing! Her focus has always been on emphasizing contrast and variety within the composition while vividly capturing the light and color of her subject, Being an artist never loses its appeal and continues to be such a fulfilling and exciting process. Painting five days a week for almost two decades has helped Erin make a lot of discoveries and hone her painting style.
