Laura Lit (born Laura Doolin in 1979) is a native Texan, currently living and working in Austin Texas.  She received her BFA in Painting from RISD in 2001, and has since participated in group exhibitions and solo shows throughout Texas, Florida, California, and New York. 

   Her artwork is focused on the human body and is characterized by a classically realist painting and drawing style, creative lighting, a slight romance with surrealism, and savagely intimate portraits that are occasionally augmented by sewing directly through the painted canvas.


All works are for sale.  She is available for commissioned portraits as well so please feel free to contact her here for more information:
