About the Artist:

Laura Goodson is a Texas-based artist with a studio/gallery in the smallest but most wonderful town of Camp Wood.

Laura's art embodies the essence of the modern West, a tapestry woven with tales of cowboys, bandits, renegades and the western landscapes. With each brushstroke, Laura breathes life into her subjects, infusing them with a sense of nostalgia and reverence for the West’s storied past. Her art serves as a timeless homage to the cowboys and outlaws who shaped the landscape, while also celebrating the enduring spirit of resilience and adventure that defines a region. Traditionally drawn to the simplicity of black and white, Laura's work embodies the stark contrast of light and shadow, mirroring the raw intensity of the American west. Yet, as she journeys deeper into her craft, she boldly ventures beyond the confines of monochrome, embracing the vibrant hues of the sunset-lit prairies and the rich tones of the rock filled canyons. 

Her art represents more than what is delivered 2 dimensionally; it also represents love lost, love gained, the laughter shared between friends, and the quiet moments of introspection beneath a starlit Texas sky. Laura's art isn't just about paint and brushstrokes—it's a reflection of who she is and her generous spirit. She's not one to simply paint a piece and call it a day; she's out there, boots on the ground, building spaces and places to celebrate other folks and members of the community. Laura is the epitome of a true Texan,  always ready to lend a helping hand and share a good laugh.
