Laurie Ann Balmes
I was born in Long Island, NY and from a very early age, I enjoyed drawing and coloring. I even got my first commission at age 9, when my Brownie Troop asked me to design and sketch our Girl Scout Cookie booklet. I’ve been hooked ever since.
I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Fashion and Design, but today I continue to apply my artistry on canvas instead of fabric. I love to paint. It is much more than a hobby… it’s my passion.
