As splintering light fractions into thousands of colors, Laurie's journey in life has encompassed many careers from runaway model to graphic artist, from musician to singer, from teacher to artist. She believes the greatest influence in her life is the beauty God provides daily.

 A degree in At, eight years with an advertising agency and twenty nine years teaching at has come full circle to top honors yearly at international art shows in oil, watercolor and photography. Viewing a Laurie Pace painting is a rich experience that drips with color and emotion. Her passionate works are alive with movement, boldly created with a wide brush and a palette knife. She loves working with oils, dramatically carving out the paint and transferring the energy to the canvas and ultimately on to the viewer. Pareidolia is the name for what happens when Ms. Pace gazes at her thickly applied strokes of oil paint and begins to visualize equine forms. It's the same term used to describe the phenomena of seeing animals in colds or faces in the moon.

 Laurie is co-founder of four working groups of artists, Contemporary Fine Art International, Artist of Texas, Daily Painters of Texas and the Five Graces. She is an associate member of Women Artists out West and the Oil Painters of America, The American Watercolor Society, Daily Painters, International Equine Artists and Professional Published Fine Artists. She is a listed artist on askart.com and artprice.com. She has exhibited and showed throughout the world. Private collectors, senators, ambassadors and large corporations select her work to decorate their homes and offices. 

 Her artwork has been published and featured in numerous magazines, newspapers and books. She has been a featured artist in Western Art Collector, Appaloosa Journal, American Art Collectors, The HITS on the Hudson Grand Prix and in Cowboys and Indians. Her work has been published on the covers of Appaloosa Journal July 2010, The Appaloosa Mountain Directory 2010 , The Sight Hound Magazine Winter 2009-2010, and Horseback Magazine June 2011.

 You can find her work in: The Rare Gallery, Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Mirada Fine Art, Denver Colorado; The Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas Texas; Earthworks Art Gallery, New York; SR Gallery, Hong Kong; and our House Gallery California.

 "When attempting to capture horses or wildlife on canvas, it is a constant challenge to weave the animal into their environment. To separate the subject form the setting is to expose it tot he naked eye. The animal is part of the wild and the wild is part of the animal. To coexist they become one in the same. Every breath, every movement, every motion, all in constant tempo together. "

 "Expressive color dominates each of my paintings. The interactions of different hues and values create a continual motion on the flat surface bringing to it a dimensional state before your eyes. Constant is life ever full of a continuum of change. Such is my art as it reflects the effervescence of the here and now." Laurie Pace
