Laura Jo Sherman

 
Sun River, Oregon

Artist's Statement

Laura Jo grew up on the east coast and moved to Oregon in 2001. She graduated with a degree in art history and art education. Teaching art in New York state kept her busy for 30 odd years. Now she is concentrating on learning and growing as a professional artist. She works only in pastels.

She has studied with many well know pastel artists including Christine Debrosky, Richard McKinley, Albert Handell, Dawn Emerson, and Jennifer Evenhus to name only a few. She feels that to continue to grow as an artist you should take advantage of professional guidance and support when it’s available.

Although she currently does not have Gallery representation it has not stopped her from painting everyday and constantly producing paintings. Her recent project has been a series of horse paintings. Specifically they are mustang horses located in the state of Oregon. Wildlife and the local landscapes are also favorites.

Soul Man

"Soul Man"

pastel

“ Soul Man “ was a mustang being held in the BLM corrals in Hines, Oregon. He was gathered from the range that is experiencing extreme drought in the southeast of the state. He was a very quiet horse and even approached the fence to take a carrot. I was pleased to photograph him. I hope he found a home.

Dimensions: 16" H x 16" W

Little Miss Sunshine

"Little Miss Sunshine"

Pastel

“ Little Miss Sunshine “ was probably born very recently. She was staying very close to her mother amidst the herd of other mustang mares and foals. I was captivated by the image of love seen in this particular moment. All the mares with foals have a large corral all to themselves. My photo of this pair was taken at the BLM facility in Hines, Oregon.

Dimensions: 26" H x 32" W
