Laskin describes her work as a combination of phantasy and reality--often combining the unusual.  "My paintings often focus on an anonymous nonrepresentational figure comprised of natural elements and unusual combinations,” says Laskin. “I am interested in decorative language and the assemblage of forms which are placed in situations existing in a natural worldly environment.
