Gardens provide inspiration for her floral works. A Vermont native who grew up in the Woodstock area, Laurel is self-taught in art and photography. She has worked in the fields of horticulture and forestry for 36 years and is an avid outdoorswoman. She lives in Barnard with her husband Erik, who makes the frames for her paintings.
