“Beauty in fine art is not always fashionable, but humans need it. Especially now. I make art to show the beauty that is still all around us. Turn off the news and notice the light through the trees. It will calm you down, and lift you up.”
After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura Wilder discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired, she learned printmaking, and submitted her vintage-style block prints to the Roycroft Renaissance Jury. The jury certified her as a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and soon elevated her to Master Artisan.
Twenty years later, she continues to make block prints and paintings inspired by the beauty in nature, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the sweet, simple things in life.
