Laura Ricci’s whimsical, post-apocalyptic landscapes delight in both imagining a new ecological state where mankind’s rules are superseded and Nature reclaims the environment and in daydreaming fantastical escape from her everyday realm. Her work has been shown in exhibitions in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California; San Antonio, Texas; and Chicago, Illinois. Three of her paintings were published in New American Paintings number 61. Ricci received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2002 and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Kalamazoo College, Michigan in 1995. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
