L.J.Rich. b: 1979, Salisbury, England.

Laura Rich is a British painter based in the south west of England.

With clients including P&O, Cunard and The Maybourne Hotel Group, she is an experienced commercial artist and designer, having trained in Graphic Design and Illustration (BA Hons, 1999 – 2001).

“I take inspiration from the Wiltshire downland and Dorset coastline within easy reach of my home and studio. My paintings are created using many layers of narrative; I hope my work provokes a memory or stirs an emotion in the onlooker. I am not concerned with the figurative aspect of the landscape itself, although it is always my starting point, moreover I want to capture the emotion of the moment I was there”

Laura continues to work on commercial projects and private commissions and regularly sells work to interior designers for placement in clients’ homes.

Her contemporary landscape paintings are sold in galleries across England and are held in private collections internationally.

Limited Edition Artist Prints (giclee) are available direct or via Whistlefish Galleries
