Biography


"Since the time I could pick up a crayon as a little girl, I have been fascinated with color and creating beautiful images. Forty+ years later I am still coloring, so to speak. A Southern California native, I attended Art Center courses during high school and went on to UCLA to earn my BA degree in Design. I combine my talents and passion for exploration into artistic images, transforming my observations into expressions of sentiment. My latest work is around translating the amazing vibes of the ocean and beaches into semi-abstract oil and acrylic paintings - primarily scenes from the California coast and Hawaii. These newer paintings are part of a series entitled 'Take Me to the Beach.'
 
The images I tend to create are centered around the richness I find in my personal adventures, those sentimental journeys we all take when we open ourselves to the wonder that surrounds us - from the beauty of the American landscape, to the dream of that ideal retreat. I like to focus on the simplicity of my surroundings to capture the essence of the moment. Now that I live in San Clemente, I am blessed to be surrounded by such beauty, and to have the opportunity to share my artistic expressions with the local community."
 
Laurie has served as a guest lecturer at Long Beach City College and as an instructor at San Clemente Art Supply. Her work has been commissioned by various individuals and organizations across the US. Several years ago she was honored to create a custom image for the City of Irvine to present to their Shanghai sister city. Laurie lives in San Clemente with her husband, Bret, and their dogs Baron and Paisley.
