Laura Antony is a Rockwall area artist who has been painting for over twenty years. She has studied art in many different mediums at Northeast Louisiana University, Texas A&M Commerce, and within the Dallas County Community College District. She has traveled to Italy twice to study the art of the Italian masters, and has fine-tuned her skills in by attending workshops by Lee Herring, Gregg Kreutz, David Leffel, and Jean Chambers, and continues to look for opportunities to study and learn with other painters. Laura is an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America and a member of the Rockwall Art League, the Richardson Civic Arts Society, and the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society.
Laura retired from a seven year position as Art Instructor at Heritage Christian Academy in 2004 to meet the growing demands of her own career as an artist. She juggles a happy marriage, three nearly-grown children, and church activities with her time in the studio. Although she is technically experienced in many art mediums, she has chosen (for now) to focus on her first love, oil painting the still life in the tradition of the Old Masters. She continues to explore all the fascinating possibilities that the play of light and color can create.
