Laurie Skantzos is mixed media painter living in Canada. Laurie’s process is very intuitive at times incorporating layers of stencils, handmade paper with paint; at other times, using oil and cold wax. She often works on several pieces at the same time simultaneously creating order and chaos, adding and removing paint until beauty emerges in a finished piece. As an avid gardener and a nature lover, her work is visibly an ode to the beauty of the outdoors. Laurie studied Fine Art at the University of Waterloo where she made the Dean’s Honours List. For over ten years she has focused on working singularly as an artist and exhibiting across Canada, in the US and Europe.
