OF SOUL AND SEA ARTWORK BY: LAURÉL SCHMID WORDS BY: ANDREA ENRIGHT A true artist paints from the heart. And that’s how Laurél Schmid goes about every piece. Her paintings evoke a strong connection to the outside world. Because that’s where her heart feels most at home. Sky above. Sea below. WHAT WILL YOU FIND WITHIN? Perhaps a texture that awakens your senses. A depth that refuses to back down. e waves beneath your body. Sun on your face. e pull of a sail across the water. 18 PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE Finding Serenity, Left
