About Laura D. Zajac

I am a Philadelphia based artist and live event painter. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Penn State University and also studied art in Rome. My professional paintings include my abstract and animal bodies of work. My interest in wildlife stems from a childhood spent mostly in nature.

Artist Statement

Raw, earthy, and gritty coincide with modern contemporary in my work. Drips fall from my figures; paint is applied with various tools aside from a brush.  The intention of my organic shapes is to remind the viewer that we are a part of nature, not removed from it.  I am highly influenced by the natural flow of the earth and the connectedness of all beings.
