Recognized as a figurative and landscape painter, Laura’s technique includes a tradition of strong design with patterns of colour and form and a pervasive sense of personal style.
Born in 1968, Woermke studied at Fanshawe College in London (Fine Art Diploma 1987-1990), and resumed her art studies at the University of Windsor (BFA 1990-1993). She currently holds the position of Executive Director and Curator of the St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre.
Woermke’s work is included in both private and public collections.
‘As an artist, I aim to keep the mystery alive in my work as much as possible. This is reflected not only in the questions I ask, but also by keeping an open mind about how art can engage the world.’
