Laura Crabtree Hollenbeck

Laura says “when I’m inspired to paint I can almost feel the meditative state I will achieve in the midst of creating the outcome. I can only hope the beauty, warmth and life in my subject matter will appear to the beholder of my art. I strive for the positive in life and to make real what strikes me at a particular moment.”


Laura’s award winning work has been juried into local and international competitions and publications. She has painted ever since she could hold a paintbrush and has studied at various colleges and universities, workshops and independently self-taught for over 40 years. Her work is in private and public collections throughout the country and in Europe and Russia.
