As a child Laurie loved art, drawing and creating beautiful pictures. Academics and life choices took precedence over art, but the creative urge was always there. While raising a family and pursuing a career in law enforcement, Laurie intermittently participated in various art adventures. After retiring in 2009, Laurie began devoting herself to the creative process by attending workshops, art classes, and learning various artists' techniques.
Laurie's creative interests encompass watercolors, oils, pastels and acrylics. Combining these disciplines, she portrays animal portraits, still life, landscapes, whimsical animal characters and abstracts.
Currently Laurie's artwork can be found at the Artsy Fartsy Art Gallery in Carson City, Nevada....
