Laura Culver Profile Photo

Laura Culver

San Rafael, CA

Laura Culver was raised in Orinda, CA and earned a B.S. in Graphic Design from UC Davis. After a career in stock photography and advertising, she settled in San Rafael CA, and for several years was an artist specializing in Hand-Colored Photography. However, her life changed in 2006, when she chanced upon a local oil painting class. A little fun became a driving passion, and she left the photography behind to pursue the creativity and challenge of plein air (outdoor) oil painting. Focusing on the “Colorist” approach, she gradually developed a distinctive style and palette of intense warm and cool colors. She has studied with Camille Przewodek, the Marin Art School and many others. Her oils have earned invitations to annual art shows including West Marin Wild, the Bolinas Museum and MarinScapes. She is an Artist member of the California Art Club, and also a member of the BayWood Artists, a small group of plein air painters dedicated to the preservation of local open spaces.
