Laurie Goldstein-Warren

“I have been painting watercolors for over nineteen years. Art has always been a part of my life. When I was young, ballet, tap and jazz dancing was my creative outlet. I was a dancer in the Rochester Academy of Performing Arts dance troupe until the age of 18. Later on my creative path took me to hair styling. I opened my own salon in New York and competed in fantasy hair competitions. I loved these particular shows because you had to create something never seen before, more avant-garde than styles you would see on the street. When I moved to West Virginia in 1998 and found myself¬† in the countryside, I went back to one of my first creative loves – art.”

“After many years of studying the art of watercolor with some fantastic teachers and mentors, I have been so fortunate to have found success in this field. My artwork has been shown all over this country and has been exhibited in Canada, China, and Japan. I now enjoy teaching my workshops and jurying exhibits around the country.”
