About The World and Work of Laurel Izard

Help is celebrate the talented local artist Laurel Izard. Michigan City, on the shore of Lake Michigan has been her home for over 20 years. Her work has been exhibited throughout the region and the U.S. in galleries, museums and art fairs. She finds that working with humor allows for seeing things in a new way, which is less judgmental and more receptive to possibility. Some of the influences on her work include: alchemy, nature, tribal art, religious iconography, the tarot, medieval illumination, mythology, psychology, pulp science fiction and comic books.
