Meet Laurie and her Morgan Horses


I was born and raised in the verdant landscapes of the Green Mountains of Vermont. In 1968 when I was six years old, my Welsh grandmother, who was a talented painter herself, gave me a set of japanese watercolours. That was the beginning of my lifelong passion of creating art. Animals and particularly the big cats and birds of prey were my fascinations and I wanted to be a wildlife painter when I grew up.

I've been a professional artist since my teens and participated in many local and statewide art shows during that time, winning several awards in the junior divisions. I then went on to attend Parsons School of Design in New York City and graduated with honors with a BFA in Communication Design in 1984.  I have owned/run my own design and illustration studio now for over 35 years, specializing in the horse industry. During that time I have also pursued my love of nature, painting and drawing as well, culminating in taking the jump to digital painting in 2004.

I left the Big Apple and moved to Colorado in 1987 where I now have a small ranch in the foothills of Northern Colorado. My love of horses blossomed the first time I rode one over thirty years ago in Central Park in New York City. After moving to Colorado I bought my first Morgan horse, and myself and my husband have been the proud owners of five lovely Morgans over the years, with whom we have done everything from eventing, classical Spanish riding, ranch work, parades, Australian bullwhip cracking exhibitions, experiencing the majestic beauty of Colorado on horseback and more. They are our best friends and my artistic muses. My other passion is traveling to the far reaches of the world and riding beautiful horses in exotic settings such as Africa and Australia, as well as discovering the wild and haunting beauty of the American Southwest.

Inspiration

All of my life, animals and nature have been my inspirations, and especially my own Morgan horses that I have shared my life and home with for over 35 years now. Being out in the beauty of Colorado with my four legged best friends is one of my deepest pleasures and is always on my mind as I create. The other large influence in my life and art since my move to Colorado in the late 80s has been my study of indigenous cultures and artforms. I've traveled the American southwest and native lands there as well as traveling to Africa and Australia, and falling in love with the art and cultures there as well.
