Laura Mayes Rosser

Beginning two years before retirement, I took Art 101 at Watkins Institute (now Nashville School of Arts) in Nashville, Tennessee for two years. My further training has been with Classical Realism instructors, especially Allan R. Banks at his atelier in Florida for nine months. My focus has been on portraiture which has lead me to realize that although we all have the same features, God made us individually unique in every way.

The cover picture and first three pictures are in order by most recent since moving to Columbia SC. All pictures are from life except Ray Skinner, Dustin, Day of Promise and The Minnow Net.
