About Laura Lea




Laura Lea Comeau - Harrison has been exhibiting and creating art for the last 30+ years. She has been able to pursue her art full-time since immigrating to Canada in 2004.  She primarily works in acrylics and watercolours, but maintains a passion for black and white ink drawings as well. 

Her art is inspired by her love of nature and the beauty of Canada. Each painting attempts to translate this beauty to the viewer as seen and experienced by the artist.
