About:

I am part of a core group of people whose presence and practices - whether visual, literary or performance - insures the continuance of Provincetown as a vital arts colony. My path in the past thirty years has been circuitous, instinctual and diverse. I am a painter turned actor turned arts writer, returning to drawing and painting in 2015 as if coming home after a long journey. 

Emily Mergel writes "Laura Shabott continually draws inspiration from abstract expressionist Hans Hofmann and breaks forms into their most evocative essentials...She seizes the opportunity to burst the gallery walls, speaking with intentional gesture in visual vocabulary all her own."
