Laurie DeVault, Fire and Ice, contemporary abstract acrylic and pencil, painting on canvas, 40 inches by 16 inches, gallery wrap.
Laurie DeVault is a contemporary abstract painter whose creative process relies on exploration and intuition. She rarely plans her paintings, preferring to stay in the present and let her brush lead the way. She finds non-representational art to be very liberating, much like improvisational jazz or dance, in which she can create with complete spontaneity, free from self-limiting judgments and preconceptions. Laurie uses acrylic and mixed media in her diverse paintings.
