This Artist Transforms Black-And-White Sonograms Into Colorful Paintings
Laura Steerman is a 35-year-old artist and mother of three from Dublin, Ireland who creates colorful paintings using ultrasound images. She began painting while pregnant with her daughter, after having several reduced movement scares. "Each scan showed she was doing just fine despite the lack of kicks, but I felt the gray, blurry images just didn't do her precious self justice," says Steerman. Friends quickly noticed her work and asked for paintings of their own children's sonograms and soon Laura Steerman started taking commissions from people all over the world. This allowed the woman to abandon her dull work as a lawyer and start a colorful journey as an artist.
Laura's work is a celebration of pregnancy and birth, the beauty of life. . It's an emotional experience, and definitely, one that connects people as Steerman says that she has "met so many wonderful people who have shared their stories with me. No two experiences or babies are the same."
Although the colorful art is stunning on its own, the artist behind it believes that it's the subject that makes it so special. So scroll down and see the beauty of life Laura captured in so many colors, and maybe even get one of your own child.
