Laura Ann Colussi is a mother, artist and teacher who is always making things. Her work is process based and focuses on the intersection of childhood joy and finding one’s place in the world without losing that joy. She graduated from Saint Joseph’s University with a BA in Fine Art where she studied photography and sculpture. She currently teaches art to Pre-K through eighth grade students at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, a private school in Philadelphia, PA. Her work has been displayed in online galleries and brick and mortar stores in the Philadelphia area. You can spot her in a crowd, withher paint splattered boots, covered in glitter, picking up random objects thatshe finds inspiring. She hopes to bringa sense of wonder and awe through her teaching and her own art, helping all ofus remember times we felt pure joy.

I believe we are on earth to experience moments, moments that make us feel as if we are a part of the world around us, instead of passing visitors. Moments, which are perfect in their beauty, freedom, discomfort, passion, power, or restriction. My art not only represents powerful moments I have experienced, but the process of making art are my greatest moments of all. In creating art I am at total peace. I am all at once separate from the burdens of the world and tangled in the earth’s history and power.
