SPEAK YOUR SOUL: THE ART & DESIGN OF LAURA MCCULLOUGH
"The World will tell you to speak your mind; the world will forget you. Rather you must learn to Speak your Soul." - Laura Mc.
MEET THE ARTIST
A lover of Faith and Believer in what is Beautiful
Laura McCullough is an artist, poet and writer happily nestled in the North Georgia mountains. Throughout her life, an approach to the world of examining, collecting, deconstructing and reinventing has informed nearly every facet of Laura's creative process, extending into not only her writing and artwork, but her education, career choices, and most profoundly her faith. After attending college in the fields of Graphic Design, Interior Design, and Biology, then to pursue a career in Nonprofit Animal Welfare, she has settled into the occupations of Minister, Artist, Poet, Graphic/Publication Designer and Homeschooling mother of 3 boys. As "free time" allows, she will one day expand her resume to include Children’s Book Author, Christian Counselor and perhaps Quantum Physicist.
A love of Science, Mathematics and the beauty of Creation drive McCullough’s work. Her faith in the Elohim of Israel and the whole counsel of His Word is the central element of her life, the core of everything she produces and pursues.
Over the course of her artistic career, McCullough has worked in nearly every medium, although she has come to find a deep and tangible resonance in the combination of mixed-media collage and poetry. She also currently does a large volume of digital work as part of the design company she shares with her husband, Ayil Designs.
Laura has had pieces featured in the galleries of the Art Institute of Atlanta, eclectic galleries such as Wild Cat on a Wing, on programs such as Good Day Atlanta, and is the cover artist for the Winter issue of Rattle Magazine and works by several prominent authors. She currently has pieces in the collections of 2 regional museum Galleries. Her poetry has been featured in numerous publications and anthologies, most recently in Rattle Magazine, The Blue Mountain Review and the newest anthology from Right Angle Publishing, “If I Could Tell You Anything.”
Laura and her husband Justin are the Pastors of ONE Ministry serving in Ellijay, Georgia.
