Laurie Celine is a contemporary landscape painter who lives in Taos, New Mexico. She moved to Taos in 2013, relocating from her longtime home of Cape Cod where she still returns to paint. She studied painting in college, while earning degrees in environmental philosophy. She is also an animal welfare advocate, and a journalist. She returned to painting seriously in 2008, when Maggie the elephant enchanted her enough to put pastels to paper. She came to Taos in 2009 for a two week visit and stayed five months, plein air painting daily with local artists. Her paintings are in oil and pastel, and are constantly expanding in color and expression. Lately, Laurie has been playing with abstract landscapes and color in her studio, as well as plein air painting.
