Laurie received her BFA and MFA from California Institute of the Arts. She has had a successful career as an Graphic Designer and Interior Designer and in 2008 she decided to focus on her personal art work.

"I work primarily from my own photographs and collection of vintage magazines, books and postcards. I find much of my inspiration from my love of my Southern California background and the mid- century architecture and design that I grew up with as well as the influence of the Bauhaus, Russian Constuctivism and the great art movements of the 20th Century. Through my work, I playfully engage with images and themes of some of these images as well as ideas that resonate with me at the moment. Through my work, I hope to bring joy, humor and kindness. I am grateful to be an artist everyday and hope to share that gratitude and give back to the world in kind."
