Best known and loved for her portrayal of Tina Kennard in that little old Showtime show “The L-Word” Laurel Holloman is actually a woman of many talents, with one that is currently seeing acting taking a back seat being her artistic gift of painting that has seen her produce an incredible array of abstract pieces from oil paintings to sketches.
Something that Laurel has been passionate about since her childhood Laurel combined her love affair with both acting and art in her college years gaining a BA from the University of North Carolina, with a Performance Studies/Art major as well as studying painting and sculpting at both UCLA and The San Francisco Art Institute.
Putting her attention now into the launch of her studio at LaurelHollomanStudio.net, Laurel has been receiving just as much praise for her artwork as she has for her acting and has successfully sold her one-of-a-kind artwork as well as consistently landing commissions for new pieces.
Known for painting figurative abstracts in large format using oil, the pieces Holloman creates have a unique depth and vibrancy that eloquently and paradoxically mute the silence of her emotions and feelings, with Laurel describing her work as “…like small mental swirls of whatever is going on in my life emotionally.”
As well as exhibiting her work both locally and nationally in various exhibitions, Laurel has also used her talent to support numerous causes donating her artwork to be auctioned at several charity events including Bark, The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust and Sewing Hope.
And now you lovely lesbian ladies of this world have the chance to check not only her work out but the lady herself as she is heading to the Club Skirts Presents The Dinah, complete with posters of her artwork to sign as a way to give back to her lesbian fans/art lovers for their continuous support.
