Laurie Justus Pace

Laurie was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1952.  After completing her undergraduate degree of Commercial Art, Laurie worked as the head artist in an advertising agency. She renewed her love for art and music by teaching children in the community and forming the ‘In Perspective Studio’ in 1982.

As an artist, an art teacher, and a musician, Laurie is intensely aware of the rhythm that weaves its way into her work. She feels there is a story to tell as she comes to canvas. Growing up in the open prairies of Texas, Laurie has grown a passion for painting animals, especially horses. Her horses have a unique style, bold and vibrant. She loves working with oils and intense colors. Her use of the palette knife and wide brushes brings energy to her paintings.

Laurie has taken first place in professional works on canvas in 2001, 2003 and 2004. She has donated work to various charities and rescues throughout the United States.
