cold wax + oil

Laurie’s contemporary, process driven painting is largely inspired by the interactions of colour, shape and application. She studied fine art at the University of Waterloo and her work is displayed in galleries throughout Ontario. Laurie’s work is included in private and public collections across North America, Europe and Asia. She works from her studio in Elora Ontario where she is the resident artist at Elora Centre For The Arts.

Laurie also teaches sessions at the Guelph School of Art, Elora Centre for the Arts, and a week long intensive during the summer at the Wellington County Museum. She offers classes in her studio. The focus is on building a visual vocabulary of tools and techniques while further establishing each participant’s unique voice.
