All About Me!
Laura Cluthé is a Canadian contemporary artist and photographer currently living in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. Her artistic body of work focuses mainly on capturing the essence of the human form through abstraction, which stems largely from her passion for photographing people.
Drawing and painting have been passions of hers since she was very young. She began to study them seriously in high school, which is also when she developed her knowledge of and love for film and digital photography. She chose to continue pursuing her passion for art in college, majoring in Studio Art and minoring in Mass Communications at Principia College. Laura has had a very experimental artistic career throughout college. Her classes in photography, figure studies, water-colour and oil painting as well as her travels abroad have helped her develop her unique style and have made her love the human form as a subject.
Laura's work has been displayed in the James K. Schmidt Gallery at Principia College three times, throughout the college campus, and in two juried art shows. She is the recipient of the Kathryn Cogswell Maule Art Award, the Creative Arts and Communication Unit Scholarship, the Helen Henley Prize for Journalism, and the Mary T. Shutt College Journalism Award at Principia College.
