Biography



 
Laurie grew up on a farm in southeast Wyoming. She has lived in New Mexico, Texas and Canada. In February, 2019, Laurie and her
husband Steve, retired to Cody Wyoming.  They chose this location to be close to the mountains and nature. 
 
Laurie has worked in various mediums since her early 20’s.  She started in water color paints and expanded to various mediums such as graphite, charcoal and colored pencils.  In 2016 Laurie started working with acrylic paints and has since moved on to oil paints. Laurie is enjoying the way acrylic and oil paints allow her to loosen up from her tight and detailed style of work of the past. It creates a more personal and freer style in her work. Laurie has always been intrigued by living subjects and the movements and the energy they evoke. She is also drawn to the contrast made from dark and light. She tries to capture those qualities in all her work and hopes her art evokes depth and emotion to the audience.
 
Laurie has largely been self taught but has been mentored by her mother who is also an artist. She has also taken several instructional classes and has grown in her talents and confidence over the last 30 years.
 
Laurie has done commission work of people and pets in various mediums.
