Laurie's abstract expressionistic paintings convey an ethereal world filled with energy, spontaneity, and aliveness. Using unique and unexpected color combinations, the shapes and forms in the pieces are distinct, yet also a part of everything else in the atmosphere of the painting. Her paintings are reminiscent of the rich, intermingled designs of a Persian carpet, or a butterfly's wing. The viewer is drawn into a unique other-world like place, a place in one's imagination and fantasies.
