Famous faces: portraits by Laura Parker.

Laura Parker was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ten years ago Parker enrolled in several courses at the University of New Orleans in order to enhance her artistic talents. These classes in painting technique served as a solid foundation for Parker's natural gifts.

Today Parker's works in pastels, oils, and mixed mediums can be found in many art galleries in and around the New Orleans area, in national exhibitions, and in nationally published magazines.

Parker's paintings have been praised for their realistic portrayals of the human condition. Her greatest talent is her ability to bring a portrait to life by displaying emotions, a sense of time, and a feel for place.

Currently, Parker's latest works entitled "Preserving Our Future" are on exhibit at the Robert W. Woodruff building in Atlanta, GA. This building serves as the central library for Clark Atlanta University and Spelman, Morehouse, and Morris Brown Colleges.
