Laurie Winter was born and raised in the Maritimes, is a 5th generation Canadian. Her great grandfather was one of the first surveyors in the province of New Brunswick. His paintings, designs and inventions are exhibited in the Moncton Historical Museum along with her great uncle's model sailing ships and working miniature steam engines.

Laurie's inherited artistic talent was evident very early in life as she sketched, painted and sculpted her way through school. The money saved from the sales of her early works took her to Europe for a summer of close study and appreciation of the early masters.

Through adult and evening classes at the Alberta School of Art and seminars with well known artists and teachers, she is now painting full time. Oil, acrylic and watercolour serve her equally well, watercolour being her favourite.

Many of her paintings have been sold across Canada, Japan, and Western Europe. She has been a member in the Federation of Canadian Artists.

After many years in Alberta, Laurie has returned to New Brunswick to continue her career. Her inspiration and residence during the summer can be found overlooking the Bay of Fundy in Mace's Bay, N.B. and the remainder of the year in Fredericton and Grand Lake area.

Laurie is in Studio 202 at the Charlotte Street Art Centre and she's usually there from 10 am until 4 pm working on her latest inspiration.  Cards and prints are on display and for sale.  Drop-ins are very welcome.
