LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – In a hidden studio in the Hillcrest neighborhood, you’ll find Laura Fanning lost in her passion.
“This is a very wonderful way to spend a day,” she says.
At her own pace, Laura creates works of art in her studio space. Laura is a lifelong artist who spent her professional career at Baptist Health as a graphic artist.
“As soon as I retired I realized I could do what I want,” she adds. “I’m the boss here, I’m the boss.”
What she wanted to do was find unique images and make art.
“I’m always peaking over the edge of dumpsters to see if there’s any metal in there,” she continues.
Laura is a multi-medium artist. In addition to old metal, she uses paint, pictures, wood, and paper goods, really anything she wants.
“A lot of my work is materials-driven. I don’t start with the finished piece in mind. I start with materials and the materials sort of drive the piece,” she explains.
