Laurie Waite-Fellner, Artist
I have been an artist for many years. I love color, composition, line and shapes. I love manipulating paint to give the illusion of something, or someone, real.
I work from photos that I shoot myself. I love painting people, I want
to make something that makes the subject and the viewer happy. Sometimes it's fun to get extra creative to tell more of a story.
I studied painting and photography in college, and I did one year of graduate school. I ended up in New York City, had various graphic art jobs, and after a bit in Brooklyn, I married and moved to New Jersey, where my husband and I raised three boys.
All along this I made art when I could, and in the last few years I feel like I am fully invested in myself being an artist. My work and my technique have improved and I am excited by what I am making.
