Laine Bachman earned her degree in Fine Arts at the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1997. Upon graduating, she stayed in Columbus and has continued as a full-time artist for the past 19 years.
In 1998 Laine started working at Byzantium where she began teaching bead classes and designing jewelry of her own. She first showed her jewelry at Sherrie Gallerie in 2003 and her paintings followed with her first show in 2007.
Throughout the years Laine has had work included in several juried exhibitions and group shows at OAL, the Riffe Gallery, The Concourse Gallery, Carnegie Gallery, and Art Palm Beach, and her work has garnered a number of awards and is in many private and public collections.
Often inspired by myths and folklore, Bachman infuses the world she creates with archetypal imagery, whimsical themes and decorative motifs. Working in watercolor and acrylics, her paintings are full of creatures and beings that are all part of the larger story behind her work. She continues to paint on a daily basis and show regularly at Sherrie Gallerie.
