Laura Robb – NWR Artist
Laura Robb grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and entered Art Student’s Academy there at the age of sixteen. In 1974, she moved to New York City to study with Michael Aviano. After returning to the southwest she studied drawing with Ned Jacob and received critiques from Richard Schmid. Since moving to Taos, New Mexico in 1986, Robb’s art travels have taken her to France, Spain, Guatamala, Mexico and across the United States. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows and her paintings have received many awards, most notably the John F. and Anna Lee Stacy Scholarship.
“It’s a familiar challenge for me to take fairly ordinary objects and arrange them in a way that conveys a purely visual communication— something hopefully more than the sum of its parts. Harmony and tranquility maybe? When I feel I’ve done my job well, words seem inadequate.
