Laura D. Schultz
Laura D. Schultz is a visual artist who works in cut paper, creating architectural-scale installations as well as works of a more intimate size. Her pieces exude both power and fragility, a contradiction she finds intriguing and actively cultivates. The images might refer to personal dreams and memories, or well-known legends, yet often include many cultural symbols or beloved references to the natural world.
Schultz earned a MFA in fiber and mixed media from JFK University, and a BFA from the University of Texas. A native of San Antonio, Texas, she has traveled widely, living for a number of years in Alaska and California. She returned to San Antonio in 2001, where she maintains a studio. She is currently an adjunct instructor of art at Northwest Vista College, as well as an Artist-In-Education with San Antonio Independent School District. She also teaches a variety of classes with other institutions.
