The work of Laurie Close, an artist based in the Bay Area of San Francisco, is colorful and abstract. The perfect paintings for homes that require a bit of brightness, whether it is to embrace the summer season or to ward off the winter blues. What is interesting to note about Laurie Close’s work is the expert combination of all the different colors. She certainly isn’t afraid to mix things up.

Working with gouache, acrylic and oil paints, Laurie Close relies mainly on layered lines and curves in thick and thin single brush strokes. She also paints on various surfaces including wood and paper. Full of depth, her paintings easily bring to mind the vibrant illustrations found in sophisticated children’s book.
