Artists > Laurie Meseroll
I’m really rather self-absorbed and I’m terribly uncomfortable with leisure. Other than painting and writing I’m always interested in food and travel. Oh–and yard sales and auctions since I really do like looking at other people’s stuff.
Laurie Meseroll has lived as an artist her entire life. One of her first paintings, of an angel, was shown publicly in 1963 at the Columbus Museum of Art. She wenton to train as a sculptor and an architect but realized that, above all else, she is painter and must follow her bliss. Laurie lived in the
“amazingly intense” New York art scene of the 1980s, concentrated on architectural commissions in the 1990s, and entered the folk art world in 2000, findinginspiration in magical and romantic experiences. Laurie chooses the slow road to capture the scenery and enormous depth of feeling she sees in everydayactivity. Her folk- outsider-art-ish paintings and portraits flow from the realm of characters and stories into unexplored areas of stillness and reflection.
