Hi! My name is Laura Mann and I was born and raised in St. Louis. I have lived in South County almost my entire life. I have always felt compelled to create since I was small.  As a young teenager in the 90s, I started to paint in oils and acrylics, drawing with colored pencils, creating with clay and making jewelry.  But painting is my love.  The way the paint hits and spreads on a blank canvas is magical.  So many possibilities can develop, anticipating the outcome, reaching my vision. I recently discovered paint pouring. It was almost like a door to another dimension of art creation opened up for me so of course, I dove right into it!

I am spiritually inspired.  I don’t believe that I am painting alone.  My hands and mind’s eye are assisted by something that is not my own and I am compelled to create it to show the world.   Sometimes I feel inspired from within but I don’t know where it’s coming from.  Sometimes I can see on the canvas what I’m going to paint before I even put the brush to it.  Most of my paintings are inspired by nature, God’s creations, and from emotions I get from music.
