I was immediately charmed by her love of color & whimsical paintings.

Laurie says . . .
"Growing up, I could spend hours creating imaginary worlds. I would go through realms of paper illustrating the images in my mind. One picture would always lead to another and another and another...
In college, I channeled this need to create to the field of architecture.
Whether designing a single house or an entire community,
I love the process of taking people’s stories, dreams, and desires,
and blending them with my own to create something wholly unique.
So for twenty years and counting, I’ve designed buildings as my way of storytelling.
Through the years, art became secondary. In my head, it morphed into this deep esoteric concept, completely divorced from the fantasies that I still drew in private as cards and papercrafts.
Then something rebloomed. I found myself filling countless sketchbooks at a remarkable rate. I wanted to surround myself with simple joys. I was drawn to whimsical quirky characters. Art fills my mind and heart and spills unexpectedly on to whatever I have at hand.
So after the insightful nudgings of family and friends, here I am, and
here is some of my work. I hope you enjoy."
Thank you, Laurie, for making us all smile!!
