After a successful career in real estate, Laura Duke returned to painting full time in 2014. Laura finds great inspiration in the colorful lens in which she views the world. Her appreciation for color is realized through the layers of paint that precisely detail her female-inspired figurative works. Duke’s landscapes, a series inspired from memories growing up alongside the banks of the Savannah River perfectly capture the very magic of iconic Southern sunsets and water scenes. Laura finds great satisfaction in the process of taking a memory, moment or idea and turning it into something lasting and timeless through her artwork.
Laura works with residential and commercial clients and art enthusiasts throughout the Southeast. Her works hang in commercial spaces in Augusta, GA, Charleston, SC, and Nashville, Tn. Duke lives in Augusta, GA with her daughter and husband.
