About the Artist
When asked why she started painting, she’ll laugh and say that it was because she couldn’t afford to buy art, so decided to paint her own. That was 25 years ago… now it has become something she simply has to do.
Currently she is studying toward a Master’s Degree in Fine Art through AAU in San Francisco. Inspiration comes from wonderful artists such as Robert Liberace, Daniel Sprick and Ilya Repin. Laurie’s love is for figurative painting, but who knows where the art journey will lead…
In the meantime she lives and works (it’s hard to call painting, drawing and designing ‘work’) from home in the Kenepuru Sound. Her favoured medium is oil, although she works in pastel, charcoal, water colour, and gouache.
