We are pleased to announce the selection of Laura Douglas as the Clifford Gouldson Lawyers Artist-in-Residence.
Clifford Gouldson Director Danny Clifford said it was a difficult selection process with a wide range of artists from across the region applying to the program.
“In the end, Laura’s body of work, style and undeniable enthusiasm for the opportunity stood out amongst a quality group of candidates,” he said.
Laura Douglas is a horse and landscape artist whose work has been recognised amongst the elite of Australia’s racing fraternity.
Selected ponies from Laura's Line of Horses provided the perfect backdrop for Myer Melbourne's 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 Spring Racing promotions as her works coupled with coordinating ensembles in prominent showcases throughout the store.
The Victoria Racing Club previously commissioned Laura to create 200 miniature canvases as special gifts for their guests at the Melbourne Cup Carnival Launch.
Laura has also painted for the Waterhouse family, painting at Gai's stables and privately for the family, painting the Cup winner Fiorente before, during and after the Cup win.
Until recently, Laura lived with her husband and family on a property at Mungallala about half way between Roma and Charleville. She has made a “school change” and is currently living during school terms in Toowoomba so their children can attend Toowoomba Preparatory School.
Laura has also successfully exhibited in numerous Regional Queensland galleries, Brisbane’s White Canvas Gallery - Fortitude Valley, and Sydney’s reputable Maunsell Wickes at Barry Stern Galleries in Paddington.
“We are very much looking forward to the opportunity to see Laura at work and for our team here at Clifford Gouldson to learn more about the artistic process,” Danny said.
