About Laurie Fields
For me, a walk through Home Depot is as inspirational as watching a sunset. The aisles filled with cement, plaster, roofing and building materials stir my imagination, as I think about new ways to use them. My work is a combination of various materials, textures and acrylic paint used to produce bold, innovative paintings and ceramics for both residential and commercial settings.
After graduating from the University of Hartford with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree,
I started my career as a textile designer before becoming a resident artist at the Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, Connecticut. My studio is now located at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia, where I have been a resident artist since 1981.
My work is in the collection of the Vanderbilt family, as well as such corporate collections as IBM, General Foods, Hyatt Regency, Westinghouse, Geico and others. It has been published in Cosmopolitan, Designer, Interior Design and Home Entertainment magazines. Over seventy of my images have been published as posters and are distributed worldwide.
