Reflecting a lifetime in the arts, Laura Abrams embraces a varied, colorful aesthetic influenced by intricate patterns, stained glass, jigsaw puzzles, nature, dance, theater, and jazz. She works primarily in drawing and mixed media collage. She has recently been focusing on life and plein air subjects in a habitat series of collages. In her artwork, flora and fauna drawings and found images inhabit small scale compositions made of foil, paper, glitter and other textural materials. Each little world has a narrative found within its layers.

After a rewarding career leading Cal Performances' education and community programs at UC Berkeley for half her life, Laura has embarked upon a new life as a mixed media artist. She holds a BA in Art History from UCLA and an MA in Arts Administration from NYU. She is currently Professional Development Chair on the Board of the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art.
