About Laurie Celine
Laurie Celine is a contemporary landscape painter who lived in Taos, New Mexico from 2013 -2019. She fell in love with it back in '02 and traveled there annually until she located there "permanently." In '09, she went for a two-week visit and stayed five months, painting daily with local plein-air artists. She began painting in college while earning degrees in philosophy. After a long hiatus, she returned to painting seriously in 2008, when Maggie the elephant sparked her muse. Maggie moved from the Alaska Zoo to the Performing Animal Welfare Sanctuary in CA. Laurie spent a month at PAWS in 2008 in the elephant barn and wrote "Maggie Remembers," a kids' book, before her five-month stay in Taos in '09. Laurie relocated to Cape Cod in late 2019.
