She also finds inspiration from the observation of society and all that is going on in one’s day. From this deep innerness she is able to create a visual an original work of art to be seen and felt by others.

Those that have come to know Laura and her works are always amazed at her ability to share not only every title for each piece, but also the stories behind the pieces.

Artist Statement - I the artist recognize that I have been truly blessed to have been given such a natural spiritual talent. It is with this talent that I have been able to go places mentally, physically and spiritually that I could never have imagined possible. It is also through this gift/talent that I have been able to grow and most of all find peace and become one with self. I chose the name Heart2rt because I put my heart into my art. No two heartbeats are a like, just as no two pieces of my works are the same, but every beat counts in living life and each piece counts in what is brought to the viewer. So I bring to you Laura Benson Art
