I fell in love with Laurie’s florals on Instagram and became an instant fan. I couldn’t think of a more appropriate artists to share for the month of August.

I never guessed that Laurie did not receive a formal art education. In fact, she was an English teacher before becoming a self taught artist. I think this is a powerful story for those of you who would like to pursue being an artist but perhaps do not have the means or time to study formally. There are many paths to following your passion and Laurie’s creative journey is inspiring!

Laurie also shares a sweet story about how she found her place at Art and Light Gallery. Her work is currently represented by them. Recently she had her first one woman exhibit there and she is sharing all about how she pulled it all together. It was a huge success!

I also fell in love with her charming new studio space and how she turned it into a magical place to create. She works with a few other artists there and she shares how they all support one another. Lots of great advice on this episode too!
