MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Laura Era

Laura Era is an award-winning, professional portrait and landscape artist and teacher but, like many MSSP members, her passion is portraiture. Basically self-taught, she considers herself an artist since the cradle! At a young age she was encouraged by her mother, portrait artist, Dorothy F. Newland.

Since turning professional in 1988 she has painted multitudes of portraits on commission, both formal and informal, in oil and pastel. Her works hang in collections throughout the US and Europe. Painting trips have taken her across the US as well as to England, France, Portugal, Germany and many times to Italy.

Laura and her husband, Richard, built their home and her large studio on the Little Choptank River near Cambridge, Maryland, where she teaches regularly since 1990.

She owns the prestigious Troika Gallery in Easton, MD.
