Laura Runge Art

Laura Runge is a Texas native and earned a BA in Journalism from Baylor University.  After 16 glorious years in Communications for Southwest Airlines, she now pursues her lifelong passion as a self-taught artist, dedicating her days to painting and searching for creative avenues in everything she does. 

Laura’s passions are creating and inspiring, and she wakes up each day in hopes of combining the two in every endeavor.  She loves to paint and work with acrylics, often combining stains, metallic leafs and powders, and textured mediums into her pieces. Drawn to movement, her pieces are an interplay of light, movement and texture that captivates imagination and wanderlust. Finding beauty in unusual objects and places, Laura uses unconventional tools and techniques to create imaginative, one-of-a-kind works of art.  “My goal is to create a painting for the buyer that will add flair and a special dimension to the space where it will reside.”
