About Laura Tan
I was born in 1962 in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. I live and work in Miami, Florida, USA, where I was raised with my siblings by loving parents. I’ve been drawing and painting all my life, professionally for 30 years. As an artist, I’ve delved into different subjects at different times. My self-portraits, however, have always been a part of my work, and now they have become the focus, internal anchor and vehicle for the expression of my thoughts and feelings. They portray what I feel, see and think at any given moment. I have no intention or agenda guiding me in them; rather, I try to express my unfiltered, emotional responses to the painting moment and paint as articulately and freely as I can. Additionally, I thoroughly enjoy all commissioned work, as well as the exploration of other subjects, including birds, animals, people and landscapes.
