“I want my art to bind people to each other and the places where they live”

–Laura Manney


Laura Manney’s colorful illustrations capture Midwestern landscapes. Grand vistas embrace quintessential farms – their quilted fields building patchwork horizon lines. Inviting Lake Superior views evoke familiarity and depictions of industry and transportation connect viewers to urban spaces.

Laura Manney grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan where she completed her BFA in painting and printmaking before earning an MFA in photography from Columbia College in Chicago. After living in New York City, Manney moved to Minnesota. Today, Manney lives in Duluth with her family and is a freelance artist and designer.
