Kate Laufert, Caracas, Venezuela Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement About Kate Laufert
I am an artist, mom, and wannabe yogi. My family and I have spent the last several years in South America, which has been the greatest influence on my work. It is a world filled with intense color and life. Like me, and my paintings.
I paint with water soluble oil paints because they are healthier for me, my family, and the environment. I frequently use recycled materials, such as cabinet doors and shelves, as surfaces for my paintings. In this way, I give discarded objects new life.
