About the Artist
Laura Cull is a mixed media artist who lives and works in Connemara in the West of Ireland.
She was born in Cork in 1969 and studied painting in the college of Art & Design in Waterford from 1987-1991. Laura has exhibited widely in both group & solo shows. The rugged & ever changing Connemara landscape/seascape inspires much, though not all of her work. Her paintings are created using an intricate process involving multiple layers of wax, plaster & paper. The detail is achieved by etching & carving into these materials. Oils are then applied using a number of different application techniques. Finally the finished work is glazed with semi-transparent oils in order to accentuate the underlying colours..
