Laurel Herbold is a freelance artist. After she graduated from Bowling Green University, in 1993, she started to exhibit her art work throughout the greater Cleveland area. Laurel is an artist who uses a variety of different mediums to express her creative outlets.
She uses a variety of techniques. She specializes in custom murals and she uses metallic paints on “black velvet” canvas. The designs are intricate medallion shapes. This certainly is not your corner, 1960’s black velvet gas station paintings! She paints with oil, acrylic and ink; her artistic variety and technique is incredible. On the whimsical side, she has designed a new society which she calls the “Wee People.” The Wee People stand their ground and interact freely amongst themselves.
Laurel Herbold’s works are for sale. The work is currently exhibited on the second and third floor of the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. The show runs through September 22, 2009. It is open and free to all.
