About the Artist, Laurie Samuels

Laurie Williams Samuels lives in Memphis, Tennessee, with her husband Harry and their two Aussies, Jack and Buzzy. She is a painter, gardener, and interior designer for her family's business, Samuels Furniture and Interiors.

Art was always important. As a child she attended Memphis College of Art Saturday school for lessons, as well as studying art throughout high school.

Laurie graduated in 1980 with a degree in design from the University of Mississippi. After working as an interior designer for many years, she picked up her paintbrushes again eleven years ago. She began by studying watercolors and then made a change over to acrylics and mixed media. This allowed a new breakthrough in experimentation in her work, which continues through today. Her paintings have won numerous awards both locally and regionally.

Presently, she is represented by David Perry Smith Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee, York and Friends Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee, and Uncommon Art Shop in Louisville, Kentucky.
