Laurie Justus Pace
As splintering light fractions into thousands of colors, Laurie's journey in life has encompassed many careers from runway 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 Art, eight years with an advertising agency, and twenty-
five years teaching art has come full circle to top honors yearly at
international art shows in oil, watercolor and photography. Bold with
color and live with movement, Laurie's style uses intense color and a
wide brush or a palette knife. She loves working with oils, carving
out paint believing energy transfers from her, to the canvas and on
to the viewer. The viewer completes the work with their intake of
the composition and the thought process that follows.

Laurie is an award winning listed artist and a member of The Five
Graces, the American Watercolor Society, and Professional Published
Fine Artists. She has exhibited several years with the Dallas Committee of Fine Arts. Internationally private collectors, senators, ambassadors and large corporations select her work to decorate their homes and offices. Her artwork has been published in numerous magazines, newspapers and books. Galleries in New York, Ohio, Wyoming,
California and Hong Kong represent her work.

Pace resides in Mt Vernon, Texas with her husband Terry, and two Kerry
Blue Terriers Annie and Paddy. Summer always finds them on the road
collecting files of photos for a year of painting in the studio. A painting by Laurie Pace will be "you-niquely yours."
