Laurie is best known for her detailed wildlife paintings and pet portraits. Born in Port Washington, New York, Laurie Walker is a fine arts graduate from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. Her affection for wildlife and attention to detail in her paintings has brought her international recognition as an award-winning published artist. She has had one-woman shows and group showings in Palm Beach, Houston, Memphis, Wilmette, New York and Puerto Rico. To better study her subjects, Laurie has worked as a zoo volunteer, holds current memberships in a number of wildlife-related organizations, and has an extensive library on animals.
Specializing in very realistic wildlife paintings and pet portraits, Laurie has developed her own technique of painting with acrylics on canvas. The paintings are done on a very smooth canvas with thinned paints that build up in layers to make the paintings come alive. The realism and the personality of the subjects come across through her techniques.
