Laurel Daniel graduated with a studio art degree from Wheaton College in 1979. After almost 20 years in the graphic design business, she returned to oil painting in 1999. Now Laurel lives and works in Austin, Texas painting full time and regularly offering workshops in Texas and Georgia. Laurel is drawn to nature's many forms, but works primarily with images of the landscape. Plein air painting is an especially important part of her process as it feeds her growth and inspires her larger studio work.

Laurel sells her small paintings exclusively through her blog; while her larger works are available at the Davis Gallery in Austin, Texas, and at the Anderson Fine Art Gallery on St. Simons Island, GA. Her paintings are in many private and corporate collections and have been published in International Artist magazine, American Art Collector and Plein Air Magazine. She is a signature member of American Women Artists (AWA) and Outdoor Painters Society (OPS), and an associate member of Plein Air Austin and Oil Painters of America.
