Laurie Wanfor Nolan
A graduate of the Sheridan College Illustration program, Laurie Wanfor Nolan has had a successful career as a commercial artist since 1983. Continuing to paint ‘for herself’, Laurie had her first solo show of large scale ‘plein aire’ landscapes in Toronto in December of 1999. Her immediate and honest approach to painting in the landscape now carries through to still life and urban subjects. In addition, her life drawings and animal studies are part of many collections where again, working directly from observation remains at the core. Recently, live performance painting has become a keen interest and Laurie has had the opportunity to share the stage with a diverse group of musicians including Liala Biali, Brandi Desterheft, Kris Roe, Ben Grossman and Matt Storch, among others.
