About

Laura Green is a mother and artist living in San Diego, CA.
 
Green received a BA in Fine Arts from UC Santa Cruz in 1998, but took a 25 year break from art-making to travel, teach and raise a family. Her first adventure was with four friends cycling across the country from Seattle to Boston. She continued to cycle in Europe, Bolivia and New Zealand. Eventually, she earned a MA in TESOL. She currently uses her teaching and traveling experience to homeschool her four children.
 
During the pandemic, classes went online and Green was able to relaunch her art practice. She completed a certificate in Art and The Creative Process at UCSD Extension in 2022, and a post-bacc in Studio Arts from UC Berkeley Extension in 2023. She attended SVA’s online residency program in March of 2024.

Green’s paintings of local birds have been for sale in the Tijuana River Estuary visitor center in Imperial Beach since March 2023. She has won numerous awards in juried group shows and exhibits regularly with local artist groups. Green’s solo exhibit “Protect, Preserve and Remember” has been displayed at various libraries and community centers in 2023 and 2024.
