Biography


 
Laurie Beth Finkelstein has studied at various institutions, including USC School of Music and the Arts, Idyllwild, California, Otis Art Institute, California State University, Long Beach, California, and through private instruction, Laurie has explored a variety of medium including clay, metal, oil, pen and ink, pastel, and watercolor, ultimately choosing acrylic and watercolor as her medium of choice. In 2008, Laurie dedicated herself to finding her voice and honing her skills to create what is now her individual style and focus.
 
Revert to 2010 - I started journaling events in my life that I needed to fully process and accept. The stories had a thread running through them and I knew I needed to share them. Choosing my favorite genre, romantic comedy, I created fictional characters and a fictional plot to bring my stories to life. I share my six therapists and our discussions as well as other personal exploits in my debut novel Next Therapist Please. 
 
In 2016, Laurie published  "Next Therapist Please" . Laurie continues to write and has two books in process of being published.
 
Laurie's rotates art displayed at The Egg Plantation restaurant in Newhall, CA, on a monthly basis.
