She attends local workshops, as well as hosts her own workshops in her studio. She has concentrated on abstract painting with a focus on color, and a strong center of interest.
Laura Maze focuses mainly on the process of her work, but is mindful of the outcome. Her changing interest in technique, style, and material allow her to keep her works of art spontaneous and personal. Laura is currently in a gold leaf period with her paintings and prints.
