Laurie Wonfor Nolan
Acrylic And Collage on Canvas
24" x 30"
A graduate of the Sheridan College Illustration program, Laurie started her career as a commercial artist in 1983. She began combining those skills with her love of the land and began painting in 1996. Three years later she had her first solo show of large scale ‘plein air’ landscapes in Toronto. Although, painting in the landscape continues to be a large part of her art practice, new subjects, ideas and inspiration found everwhere propel her as an artist. Laurie began teaching in 2008 offering a variety of classes and workshops at the Cambridge Centre for the Arts, Dundas Valley School of Art, as well as in her loft studio in Hespeler, ON.
Today, Laurie’s residence, studio and gallery space are located in a renovated church in beautiful Roseville (Ayr), ON. A haven for painters and art lovers, mentorship programs, private sessions and plein air classes are offered during this time. Gallery is open for private appointments unless otherwise posted.
Laurie’s work can be found in corporate and private collections in Canada, USA, Italy, Germany and Austria. Awards include the Bernice Adams Memorial Award for Visual Art and the KW Women of Distinction Award for Arts and Culture.
