“Sometimes my brush has bristles, sometimes it has layers!”
Laurel D. Rund’s ‘Art from the Heart’ fuses elements from original pastels, photographs, touch drawings or mixed media collages into an inspirational art form.
“At times I mix paint in a cup, or pick up a piece of chalk and apply it to canvas or paper; at other times I apply color from a digital web palette. I then morph and blend the images, and after this time of chrysalis my ‘Art from the Heart’ emerges.”
Laurel says, “Art from the Heart is a poem from my soul. In 2009, a life-changing event transformed me into the woman I am today. Never could I have imagined that the death of my husband of 42 years would take me on a journey through loss and grief to a redefined sense of self. Death, an unexpected teacher, was the catalyst of my metamorphosis. The slow and painful healing process unfolded my creativity, and the ‘Essence of Laurel’ was born.”
