Artists Who Persevere Series: Laurel Burch


Summer is just around the corner, but we are far from finished creating in the art room. To conclude this school year we are studying artists who PERSEVERE. Working and creating through difficulties is an attribute we should all emulate. Laurel Burch is an American, designer, businesswoman, and self taught artist who is best known for her colorful cats and positive attitude. Burch was born with a rare bone disease which caused her bones to be very brittle, resulting in over a hundred fractures in her lifetime. This painful condition did not stop Burch from creating beautiful and brightly colored masterpieces that were designed to bring joy to the viewer.
