LAURIE KWO is a Hawaiian-born artist based in Chicago, Illinois who is building a following as an abstract painter. Her creative journey, which began at age six, has taken her through the fashion industry and high-end interior design, and sharply attuned her passion for capturing the essence of the world around her. She has produced works for featured display and for sale in galleries and executed commissioned pieces that are part of private art collections. Her original abstract artwork, sourced from personal experience, is an exploration of classic feminine themes and delves deep into human vulnerability. Through the years, Laurie has honed her signature painting style. She studied interior design at Indiana University and expanded her learning at the Harrington College of Design. Chief among her influences is Nicholas Wilton, whom she cites as having the greatest impact on her creative process. He taught her to paint from her soul, not from a picture, to trust her intuition, and let the expression take its own course. In late 2019, as an extension of his Creative Visionary Path Program (CVP) in Sayulita, Mexico, she met and worked alongside Wilton and his coaches. Since this life-changing experience, her work has become a true reflection of herself as the artist. Having collaborated with architects, designers, and homeowners, Laurie understands the importance of meeting deadlines and what goes into the delivery of a superior customer experience. She brings a keen sense of design and many years of practical managerial experience in the corporate world and is prepared for the challenges of running a creative business. Laurie knows that realizing her goal of obtaining gallery representation for her artwork will require discipline, commitment, and a high degree of accountability. She will continue to practice gratitude, champion the success of others, and pour her heart and soul into each project.
