Personalized marketing and management services for fine artists and musicians.
When deciding on a subject to paint, I try to look, not only at the subject itself, but the beauty (sometimes hidden) in the colors, shadows and perception of the object. I love to use lots of color in my paintings. I feel that color speaks to people, catches their eye and can draw them into a particular piece. I enjoy working on a still life, working outdoors and painting nature as it happens. I also work in my studio from photographs if a subject won't sit still for me...as often is the case with animals. I try not only to capture the form of the subject, but also the feel of its surroundings and its inner nature.
Laurie Warren kicked off her artistic career with a successful mural business in Upstate New York with her brother, Todd Rohnke. Their murals can be seen in the Rochester Ronald McDonald House as well as several businesses and private homes. After moving to West Virginia, Laurie changed her focus to smaller scale works using watercolors which led to the development of her unique, limited color palette-style seen today. Her work captures the essence of the subject while adding an ethereal, almost mysterious quality to seemingly ordinary scenes. She has studied under various artists including: Ron Ranson (England), Tom Jones (Florida), David Curtis (New England), Paul George (New England), Wes Waugh (N. Carolina), and Cheng-Khee Chee (Minnesota) and travels to workshops across the country to explore new techniques to continue her artistic evolution. And she now teaches workshops as well to share what she has learned with other artists.

Laurie's artwork has been exhibited in national and international shows including the 2012 Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition in China and the 2012 Annual National Watercolor Society Exhibition in San Pedro, CA. In 2008, Laurie was chosen as one of the top 100 artists in the Paint America Paint the Parks National Artist Competition.

Laurie lives in West Virginia with her husband Lee.
