Laura Shema is a representational figure painter. She received her MFA from UPenn in 2009 and holds a BFA from MICA. Her work uses pattern with or against female figures, concentrating on the interaction of the two. She often draws inspiration from female familial roles. Her work has been exhibited at galleries in New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
