Artist Laura Schwichtenberg

James Gaffy, Journalist

Laura is an author who’s always loved art since she was little. She joined art club during middle school and that really got her interested in art.

I asked Laura a few questions about herself.


Laura Schwichtenberg – Self portrait

1. Where do you draw your inspiration from for your pieces?

“Most of my inspiration comes from my surroundings or emotions that I feel.”

2. What is your favorite thing to draw and why?

“I love drawing people because I am able to capture specific emotions and convey those emotions to the viewer.”

3. What’s your favorite piece of art and why?

“It’s super hard to choose a favorite piece, but this is one of my favorites from earlier this year. It is a portrait of my boyfriend, but I am also really happy with how much my skills have improved in just the past couple years.”
