Member Spotlight- Laurie Huff
“Creating art has always brought me a sense of joy. As I child, I would spend hours in my own world drawing imaginary people and places, or making paper dolls and designing their tiny wardrobes.” Laurie Huff now explores diverse art media and processes, primarily working in acrylic, mixed media, and oil and cold wax medium. Lakeside living, as well as a love of travel and being out in nature, serve as endless inspiration for her artwork. Her work often contains expressive linework and texture as a part of her intuitive process.
Laurie is active with several artistgroups and is currently president of Rockwall Art League. She has studied with numerous master artists and obtained a BA in Fine Arts at the University of Texas Permian Basin and a Masters of Education at Texas A&M Commerce. She enjoyed teaching art for ten years, and spent another ten years serving art and theatre teachers as a Fine Arts Facilitator in Mesquite ISD.
Laurie's artwork has been accepted into many juried shows and has received numerous awards, including the 2021 Southwest Watercolor Best of Show. A collection of her work is currently on view at the Mesquite Arts Center in the two person show "Abstracted Views - Two Interpretations" with Doris Vasek, . “One of my greatest rewards in creating art is to place my work in spaces that bring joy to others through a connection to their experiences, memories, or a sense of time or place.” You can see more of Laurie’s art at LaurieHuffStudio.com
