McLaughlin is best known for his powerful, rough paintings built through an intensive working of dozens of layers of paint, pigments, and beeswax, along with additives like earth, sand, and ash. Both austere in its minimalism and intimate in its detailed textures, his work is informed by the structural world of concrete, adobe, stone, and steel, as well as by the decay, erosion, and weathering of those materials. Now a full-time abstract artist, McLaughlin initially trained as a pediatric critical care physician, an influence still palpable in his work. In 2017, he co-authored the first ever comprehensive book on cold wax medium, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations, winner of two international book awards. He lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
