Archives of art work by year | Laura Kranz

I’ve archived all my work by year it was made. By checking out my art by year, you can get a better idea of the evolution of my work than just by looking at art series on their own.

The galleries are arranged from newest to oldest.

Art from 2016

Street lamps surreal painting-2

The 2016 collection is in process. Whenever I create new art this year, I append it to the gallery. See all the 2016 work.

Art from 2015

Organic form drawings

In 2015, I worked on my Proverbs 30 series, I started a monthly art challenge, I continued with my Theme Verse art series, and started several others. 2015 involved a cross-country move and starting a company, but I still managed to make a bunch of stuff. See what I made in 2015.

Art from 2014

Apostle portrait art Laura Kranz

2014 was a very prolific year. I quit my job, and I began a lot of project collaborations with the Bible literacy site OverviewBible.com—many of which included art series. See everything from 2014.

Art from 2013

The archives of Laura Kranz

The collections for 2013 include several detail-heavy pieces, along with a mish-mash of art with stream-of-consciousness themes. Making art in 2013 was not a high priority for me, so a lot of it is free-form—and there’s just less of it from that year. Check out work from 2013.

Art from 2012

In 2015, I've worked on my Proverbs 30 series, I started a monthly art challenge, I continued with my Theme Verse art series, and started several others. The 2015 collection is in process. Whenever I create new art this year, I append it to the gallery.

2012 was a stressful year for me, and I used art as a way to process a lot of things going on. Be warned: some of my darker pieces came from 2012 (though some of my best, as well). Much of the work is less refined since the focus was catharsis rather than ability to display the pieces. See what I made in 2012.

Art from 2011

Header Lest more navigate art series

In 2011 I started refining some of my experimentation in 2010 into series of art. The Organic Forms series began, along with a few collections based on various pieces of text. Look at the rest of the art from 2011.

Art from 2010

Her head surreal pen drawing

2010 marked a broadening of experimentation with medium. Part of this had to do with friends realizing I was an artist and beginning to donate leftover art supplies to me. I still relied heavily on pen & ink as a primary medium. See more from 2010.

Art from 2009

Drink of death

In 2009 I began applying more discipline to my art making, moving from loose concept sketches (many of which ended up in the trash) to completed art pieces on frame-able surfaces. For the first time I started using standard paper sizes instead of whatever scraps were lying around. You’ll see a lot of experimentation in the 2009 collections particularly with pen & ink.

Art from 2008 and earlier

These collections include all the art I made up to a year after I graduated high school. I took a community college figure drawing class during this time, and dabbled inconsistently in a variety of media. Most of the work I made during this time ended up being incomplete concept sketches, most of which are in the sketches collection. Some of those sketches I later on turned into real art works. See what I made before 2008 ended.
