Laurel Peterson Gregory
Laurel Peterson Gregory's work represents her vision and whimsical spirit. "Life is often way too serious. I want my pieces to lift the viewer and take them to a better place for a timeless moment. Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone smile and laugh with my work." Laurel is a classically trained sculptor. As a former repeat Director of the board for the La Scuola Classical Sculpture School, she keeps one eye on the masters and the other on the present. Her work draws on her love of figurative expression and the freedom of impressionistic interpretation. Not to mention her love of dogs. Dancing Dogs builds on her ability to observe and capture motion in clean lines.
Laurel's range of expression is enabled by a comprehensive skill set gained from extensive life experience. After earning a degree in Industrial Arts from Humboldt State University in Northern California, she came to her art in a roundabout way: mechanic, Master electrician, building official, sculptor. From design to production, there is little that she can't do to realize her visions. When she's not in the studio, Laurel can usually be found in the 10 large gardens with which she's surrounded her home and converted barn in the foothills of the Front Range south of Denver.
