About Laura Parker

The mindset of an artist

My work is usually of a personal nature. A fellow artist once asked “isn’t everything a self portrait?” I tend to agree. Although my work emulates my own trials and tribulations I have been surprised how  many of my “musings” are universal.  Often as artists we feel we are  somehow more sensitive than the rest of the world when in reality I have come to believe that we all have soft underbellies. Some of us just choose to express those thoughts/feelings through art.


 I am a tenured professor in the Art Department at American River  College.  Please visit the the campus website   (http://www.arc.losrios.edu/ )  for up-to-date information on my  teaching schedule if you are considering taking a drawing or a sculpture  class.
