Laurie Clements, an artist based in Columbus, Ohio, works primarily in oils. Her work suggests a generous use of color with a joy for movement in her often loose, fluid use of brush and other implements.
Laurie, a graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD), also taught there for many years. First and foremost, however, she considers herself to be a lifelong student of art, practicing her craft every day and delighting in the scenes and subjects in which she finds inspiration.
Laurie’s artwork depicts a broad array of subjects — from rural landscapes in Ohio to coastal scenes to depictions of her frequent travel to abstracts or what she calls her “color studies.” She paints what she finds evocative, and her work has come to reside in many lovely homes, professional buildings, and restaurants throughout Central Ohio and beyond. She is tremendously grateful to her many dedicated collectors coast to coast.
Laurie and her husband Tom actively support several organizations, including Canine Companions. In addition, Locks and A Lift was established to raise funds for women during breast cancer treatment, as Laurie herself is a survivor. With partners, she also participated in art murals in downtown Columbus during the racial protests. This experience made a huge impact on her soul that continues to this day.
Laurie never tires of her time in her studio — or wherever she is creating her work. Her artistic expression brings her great joy, and that exuberance is captured on each and every canvas.
In addition to her home studio gallery, Laurie has been represented by Hayley Galleries in New Albany, Ohio, since 2011.
