Laura Lein-Svencner

Laura Lein-Svencner grew up in Downers Grove and now resides in Darien, Illinois. She’s married with four grown children and a home full of loving creatures. Although she has studied drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and paper making, her love of paper keeps pulling her back to collage work. She is a signature member of National Collage Society and co-founder of the Midwest Collage Society, which exhibits throughout the Midwest Region. Her collages are represented at Cappaert Contemporary Gallery, Egg Harbor WI. Laura teaches her collage techniques locally at Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook, Illinois and On-line. Her work is published in North Light books, Incite I, II, and III, AcylicWorks II, The Art of Expressive Collage by Crystal Neubauer, The Artist Magazine, The Professional Artist Magazine, Cloth Paper Scissor Magazine, The Watercolor Magazine and Collage in All Dimensions (book) by Gretchen Bierbaum. When not teaching classes or workshops Laura enjoys her family, her own yard and walks in the woods that replenishes her creative spirit.
