LaurArt, or Laura, is a 33-year-old artist from Seinäjoki, Finland who enjoys painting, nature, and the addictive Pokémon Go game. In 2013, she signed up for a class with the talented airbrush artist, Marissa Oosterlee, and it began a love for airbrush art that continues to be at the heart of her unique colorful designs today. Her airbrushed graphics are inspired by her love of nature, animals, and the beautiful wilderness of her home city.
Like many artists, she struggles to find the time to dedicate to art and admits that her busy life “drains my strength to do art.” Still, she works to focus on creative projects because art is a passion and has become one of her greatest joys in life. In fact, she loves to “give away paintings to people” because it brings her joy to share her passion with others. She reminds other artists to “paint for your own joy, not for others.”
