Pearl District Artist Spotlight:
Laura Janes

Laura Janes was recently a featured artist at the Pearl District office of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty located in Portland, Oregon. The following information is taken from her biography on her website that you can visit here.

Laura Janes is a fine artist specializing in painting natural forms. Her work is informed by the raw, organic beauty of the mountains, deserts and oceans. She draws inspiration from elements found in the natural world, including desert plants, trees, water, and rocks.

For Janes, nature is an endless, complex seduction, resulting in art that is always an affair of the heart, presented with attraction, enchantment, and acute clarity. She works primarily in acrylic on canvas as well as in watercolor, and occasionally creates mixed media pieces using images, gold and silver leaf, and encaustic materials. Subjects are represented in the abstract, coming to life through Janes’ signature use of amplified colors, contrast, and composition.
