The Artist

Laurie Bishop Bogue

I like bold.  I like color. Outgoing, challenging, unusual, strong, vibrant, happy… these are all words that I would use to describe my work.  I LOVE abstract paintings, designs and thoughts.  After leaving the corporate world and the anchor desk at CNN, I had to do something creative. Now art is my work, love and obsession.

My techniques are varied from day to day.  I don’t take credit for everything that happens in my studio.  I know God is guiding me through this exquisite journey.  I  now call Georgia home, but many of my years were spent in Florida. The Gulf of Mexico, the water, the land and the swamp all have had profound effects on what I create.

I am what you would essentially describe as self-taught…living the dream in my home studio… but I have also had the honor and privilege of studying with Melissa Payne Baker, Lauren Adams and Laura Lansford as well as collaborating with other local artists.

I am  currently represented at The Bird and the Bee in Smyrna, Ga.  I  was also a featured artist at Ann Jacob Gallery, Highlands, North Carolina and am forever grateful that they were the first ones to see value in my work.  Many of my pieces are held in private and corporate collections throughout the country.
