Artist Yogi and Bodyworker
Laura, now divides her time between Milford Pa. and Brazil. She born in Los Angeles California in 1955, moved at age 10 with her mother to Belém do Para, a Brazilian colonial city at the nexus of the Amazon basin and the Atlantic ocean. She adopted ink and watercolor as her expression of choice. Her work has continued to deepen into inquiries of the elements, their nature and tendencies, through work with textiles, alternating brushwork, natural dyes and Botanical Printing.
In her 20’s, as she studied yoga and contemporary dance, she started processing a sense of time, space, and internal proprioception.
In 1988 she became a Graduate of the Shiatsu School of California, then continued her studies in Kyoto and Munich, and brought that back to Brazil.
In 2000 Laura came to live and work in NYC, In 2013, Laura found the heart centered teachings of Alan Finger, and immersed herself in the knowledge of the ancient and contemporary sciences of Hatha,Tantra and Ayurveda, and completed a 500-Hour teacher training in the ISHTA.
