About Laura


Laura's Life in Art


Laura Zanetis Post is an award-winning artist and member of the Portrait Society of America.  Oil is her primary medium and she finds it allows her to capture the beauty and depth of colors and scenes that she is drawn toward.

Laura has studied under outstanding art teachers, Chris Saper, Charlotte Wharton, and William Whitaker; and renowned East Texas artists Nancy Berkhouse, and Penny Sanders.   Laura's focus is to capture timeless scenes and impressions of people as they live life, and as they express universal emotions.

Her paintings are in a variety of private collections and have been sold in a series of auctions to benefit non-profit organizations.  She exhibits in galleries when possible and is available for commissioned paintings.

If you would like to acquire one of her paintings or inquire about commissioning a painting, please contact her.
