Meet Laurie Masters Artiste Extraordinaire!

    I have had the honor and privilege of knowing Laurie ( dubbed Princess Laurie by my sons ) for more than 25 years.  Like many friendships we meet in high school.  There was a group of us ( most of us are still friends!) that ate lunch together in the hallway outside of the library.  We were known around school as the kids in the library hall.

Laurie also incorporates texture into her paintings through palette knives or the use of textured paper to achieve the desired effect. Her paintings are contemporary portraits, all done on a fairly large scale and are intended to give the viewer a “feeling”, whether that be to elicit sympathy, tears, or a smile...."

A selection of Prismacolored Pencil Portraits:

..."most of Laurie’s paintings have been seen by others through photographs, she sent her actual painting of Ellen Degeneres to Ellen’s television studio in Los Angeles. The painting subsequently appeared on “Ellen”, hanging on the wall on one of her talk show episodes featuring actress Jennifer Aniston, being prominently displayed in the middle of a group of viewer art. It appeared on Ellen’s show a second time in an episode when Ellen took viewer art to display at the MET in New York City, where it was hung for a time..."
