Laura Allen is a Virginia native who studied art at Davidson College and sculpture at Portland State University. Prior to graduate school, she lived in a tent in Southwest Virginia for a year with her husband. After living in Portland, Raleigh, and then moving up the I-95 corridor in Virginia, she is quite pleased to be back in the mountains in Crozet. Most of her time is spent wrangling two super kids to the bus stop and activities. She exhibits in Virginia, Colorado and California. Primarily a sculptor, she is passionate about materials and process. Reclaimed objects, rich in inherent history and associations, are sewn, wrapped, folded and glued to create forms that comment on her current lifestyle and interests. She is fascinated with the hand-working processes of her grandmothers that create imperfect outcomes, adding personal, human touches to otherwise manufactured and plastic objects.
