Visual Art – San Francisco, CA

Hi, my name is Laura Gonzalez. I am a self taught artist from the Bay Area. I developed a love and talent for art at a very young age. I started painting at the age of 15 in my highshool art class, being the only student to experiment with oil paint. I started out building my skills by copying fashion magazine covers, ads and photographs. My first oil painting was \"time\", a portrait of a girl from time magazine cover. Since then oil painting has become my passion. I then attended The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchendising in San Francisco and graduated with an AA in fashion design. I draw my inspiration from fashion, music, photography, or even what I am feeling or going through at the moment. I am intrigued by beauty and the profoundness that dwells in eyes. My art changes and grows as I do. It is what expresses who I am. It allows me to to escape and feel free. I hope that with my art viewers are able to find a connection with the subject and my perception of beauty. Thank you for viewing my artwork Laura González ...more
