Since Laurie’s grandmother gave her a set of Japanese watercolors as a kid, she’s been armed and dangerous in creative pursuits. Her original childhood goal was wildlife painter, and in the early 90s partly fulfilled that by making a living as an animal portraitist. After graduating from Parson’s, she has mostly been in commercial art – developing the art side of brands, advertising, and overall marketing. A few years ago, she became more and more immersed in 3-D illustration from a technical as well as artistic side, and so does less branding and traditional ad work. Laurie lives with her partner Bill on a small ranch in Northern Colorado, with some cool cats and a couple of gorgeous (and uniquely colored) cavalry-bred Morgans. Laurie loves international travel, especially of the scuba diving and safari type, and remains fascinated by big cats and birds of prey.
