LAURA TALLEY

Laura can’t remember a time when she wasn’t drawing, painting or making things. Her need to express herself through the objects she created led her to study studio art of the University of Virginia and to earn a graduate degree in graphic arts, which prepared her for the creation of her own business as an artist—creating paintings as well as murals and faux finishes in homes and businesses for area Atlanta designers. These projects naturally led clients to seek out Laura for her interior design expertise, where she gets the opportunity to design custom furniture and textiles.

In addition to her interior design business, Laura is an avid painter. Her paintings have been sold to home decor retailers as well as galleries and to other interior professionals. “Although my early artistic training was focused on the representational, it has always been my instinct to depict nature in more abstract forms.”

Her latest collections are hard-edged colors studies, which show how colors interact with each other in different and often surprising ways. Her “Spirals” collection is her attempt to create “visual pleasure” which she achieves by combining grayer tones against brighter, fresher colors.
