Laura Heaney is a contemporary portrait artist based in Toronto. With drawing as her chosen media, Heaney’s main focus is hyper-realistic portraiture with occasional diversions into acrylic painting. A recent addition to the Canadian contemporary art scene, she enters as a graduate from the University of Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Arts, with a major in visual arts and minors in both history and art history. Trained in classical techniques and contemporary thought, Heaney works to combine her two strengths to create understated, whimsical and humorous anatomically correct drawings and paintings, each imbued with a sense of momento mori.
Laura is incredibly pleased to announce her new partnership with Camp Oochigeas where she will be donating 10% of her art sale proceeds to this wonderful operation that offers year-round programs for children affected by cancer. www.ooch.org
