Adding a touch of whimsy and wonder to everyday subjects is the signature of artist Laurie Richardson.

Her paintings demonstrate a unique approach to each subject and reflect her graphic design background. A watercolorist for many years, she now prefers oils or pastels to express her favorite elements of art: Color and composition.

In 2008, she added mixed media (acrylic painting with collage) to her portfolio. Her works are a joyful infusion of color, collage and composition.
