Extraordinary Entrepreneurs: Laura Gilmore Irish Art
Australia - Perth
Originally from Co. Clare, Laura is a self-thought artist living in Perth with her husband and two young children. She primarily paints fine art oil paintings and has her emigration story to thank for her inspiration to paint the unique landscapes and cultures of Ireland. Her painting style can be described as realism and she is drawn to scenes which are colourful, calming and thought provoking.
After nearly 20 years of no painting, Laura took back up the brush again in 2020 and painted in her spare time. Friends and family were amazed and encouraged her to keep painting. Realising how happy it made people, especially her fellow Irish emigrants in Perth, she took the leap in 2022 and started Laura Gilmore Irish Art. She realised how much her art could help emigrants, like herself, connect with home and also be a conservation starter about home.
The vision for her art is to connect the viewer to Ireland, whether that is through their own emigration story, ancestry or simply a love of all things Irish. Her hope and dream for Laura Gilmore Irish Art is to create fine art paintings for Irish homes around the world.
She is open for commissions and prints of her current work are available on her online shop and she ships worldwide.
Laura Gilmore Irish Art is part of the 2022 To Be Irish Gifting Guide.
