Lady Liberty is Laura Loving's most popular image. She hangs in almost every state in the U.S. and in countries all over the world. This powerful symbol of the United States has always represented a progressive intellectual worldview. Lady Liberty has been a feminist long before women had the right to vote. The poem inscribed on her very body has preached the benefits of inclusivity and acceptance even when the many of our citizens struggle to get on board.

In the words of the artist... "Hands down, my favorite image is Lady Liberty. She is the first painting I created after moving to New York in the summer of 2000, which is where I've always wanted to live. I always have felt this image is a victory painting. Sometimes, I think it is a self-portrait. There is such an optimism and magic about this painting that even I don't understand. Lady Liberty helped me launch my career as a full-time artist and she brought me my first real commercial success. I have sold Lady Liberty again and again. I have been commissioned to paint her in all sizes, in daytime settings, in nighttime settings, for both public and private collectors. One of my former art professors once asked me if I ever tired of painting her. I don't, and I continue to see her in new ways."
All Lady Liberty images are available in prints on canvas and paper, ceramic tiles, note cards and original paintings. Read about the commission process here.

In 2008, I was asked by the New York Junior League to create a mural at Tony Dapolito Rec Center in Soho. I was so excited because this historic recreation center also houses one of Keith Haring's murals. Lady Liberty is on the second floor basketball courts overlooking the pool where Keith's masterpiece swims across the wall sheltering the pool from the streets of New York.
After nearly a decade, it's time to touch up the art!
