My name is Laura Kucharyson, and I have a passion for God’s creation and portraying that world on canvas. There is always a potential art project just waiting to unfold. At the age of 12, I was introduced to the joy of oil painting under the instruction of Evelyn Adams, an accomplished Colorado artist. Adams’ attention to detail and mastery of mixing colors has influenced my art to this day. Living in Colorado most of my life with my husband and 3 boys, we took advantage of hiking, camping, enjoying the golden colors of the aspen in autumn, and the snowy wonderlands of the Colorado winters. These years inspired many landscapes that you can see in my art. In 2006, the family moved to Florida, where the ocean quickly became a new passion.
"Always surround yourself with others who are excellent in their craft so you can continue challenging yourself and never think you are too old to learn."
This mindset has inspired me to study under several accomplished artists in oils and acrylics such as, Meika Aton, Damien Share, Slone Keates, and Stephen Koury just to name a few. On Friday mornings, I have the privilege of teaching “Oils with Laura” in my home studio, where I find myself learning as much from my students as they learn from me. At present, you can see some of my work at the Breakers Surf Art Gallery in Satelitte Beach Florida and at the AGOV in Viera Florida.
One unique item that you will find included in all of my art work is a scripture verse. One verse is easier to find then another so let your search begin. It is my passion to continue painting God's creation and to share this with others. It is my love for my God, my family and my friends that motivates all that I do.
