Laura Jo Pierce's lush, abstract oil pastel landscapes are an offering to “cheer up the day." Known for her renderings of abstract forms and organic shapes, Laura has recently begun incorporating poetry and other observational musings about her day into the color fields. Often dating her pieces before she starts to write, Laura scratches heartfelt words into her colorful pastel surfaces or blends diaristic text with calligraphy ink in her ethereal watercolors. Her drawings thus serve as both a daily record and private journal, reflecting on both the quotidian and seemingly fleeting parts to life’s routine that often get casually overlooked. She lives and works in Oakland, California.
