Oh Me, Oh My

by Laura Galbraith




Originally from Miami, Florida, Laura Galbraith's work mixes traditional and digital art, combining the textures of a hand-drawn line with the bright colors and atmosphere of digital work. She is currently creating and conceptualizing artwork in her Brooklyn, New York apartment.

Galbraith is a big fan of color and shape, and uses these two elements as the basis for all of her works. Her drawings often convey a strong emotive power, which are very distinct in each of the lines used to create each work. Her love of graphic design, urban vinyl toys, and Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls, come together in each powerfully expressionistic piece. Each drawing explores the creation of abstract dimensions, combining both 2D and 3D into one reality.

The artist also connects with the female figure in her work. Coming from a family of independent women, she re-creates symbolic struggles relative to these people in her life. These interpretations show both the strengths and weaknesses of women, in different stages of their lives.
