Laura Scott Steiger has
had local shows at The
Reading Public Museum,
The Goggleworks, Say
Cheese! Restaurant, ArtPlus
Gallery, Studio B, the
Audubon Society, Penn
State Berks and others,
as well as displaying and
selling work at various
shops and restaurants
throughout West Reading.

Since graduating University, I have worked as a commissioned
artist; providing clients with Portraits, Illustrations, Murals,
Crafts, Private Instruction, Calligraphy, Wedding Art, Graphic
Designs and more. I have art in roughly six different countries
(including the U.S., Canada, Costa Rica, England, France, and
Hungary). I am currently working on creating a website (www.
purewhimsyart.com) as well as an Etsy store of the same name.
In the meantime, I share my art and gain more commissions
through social media (Facebook and Instagram) and word of
mouth. I have had local shows at The Reading Public Museum,
The Goggleworks, Say Cheese! Restaurant, ArtPlus Gallery,
Studio B, the Audubon Society, Penn State Berks and others,
as well as displaying and selling work at various shops and
restaurants throughout West Reading.

located one building in from the corner of South 5th Avenue

Avenue). This three-dimensional, ever-blooming cherry tree
is the first thing you see as you turn the corner.

In 2017, I was commissioned to paint a mural in Costa Rica.
"Gaia's Glen" consisted of seven panels (287sq ft). The main
focus was that of Gaia, Mother Nature, surrounded by the

The tree, splitting open a boulder and continuing to grow
and bloom, illustrates the metaphor of strength overcoming
adverse conditions.
