Laura Wilder People, Parks & Places Prints (Formerly Poster Prints)
Laura Wilder is an enthusiastic artist whose style fits perfectly into the aesthetic of the Arts & Crafts movement original and rekindled.
Originally a typical college art major, she first worked as a commercial illustrator and graphic artist. At some point she was exposed to the work of the masters of the Arts & Crafts movement and she was stunned and exhilarated she had found an aesthetic that fit her personal style.
So she struck out on her own producing a series of block prints depicting "Artisans at Work," the first of which was modeled after Janice McDuffie who owns a pottery in East Aurora near the Roycroft campus. Soon she was drawn into the Roycroft Renaissance movement and Laura is now a Roycroft Renaissance Master Artisan.
Laura became acquainted with Fair Oak Workshops when we approached her about creating a seasonal block print series inspired by the Dard Hunter illustration on the title page of Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle published by the Roycrofters in 1905. That project was very successful and a few prints remain available directly from Laura.
Laura makes linoleum block prints, occasionally taking breaks from the technical rigors of printmaking to do some oil paintings. Some of her block prints and paintings are reproduced as giclee prints or offset lithographs.
All of Laura's People, Parks & Places Prints are signed. The 3 Lithographs are actual Posters and are available as Posters, Matted Posters and Matted & Framed Posters. The balance of the images are actual museum quality Giclee prints and are available only as Matted and Matted and Framed Giclee prints.
