Laura Wambsgans

Native Californian, Laura Wambsgans began landscape oil painting seventeen years ago, after working as the managing director of a major recording studio and then as a sculptor for two decades.

Studying intensely with Scott Christensen, among other well-respected landscape painters and painting daily, Wambsgans strives to capture the effect of light on the land, though color and paint quality.
Wambsgans’ work has been exhibited nationally in solo and group exhibitions, including the Riverside Museum, Bakersfield Museum, Lancaster Museum, Ventura Museum and the Huntington Library and participated in many national plein air events, since 1986.

In 2006 Laura spearheaded “Chasing Open Spaces,” an environmental project painting the open spaces of the Santa Clarita Valley. Exhibits generated by this project were instrumental in preserving Elsmere Canyon in Santa Clarita, CA.

Laura is an active member of the California Art Club since 2002, Oil Painters of America and is a founding member of the PAC6 Painters.
