For over twenty years, Lauri Waterfield had a very successful career as a textile designer. She was creating artwork for bedding collections, bath products and sportswear for clients such as: Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren, Waverly Home Fashions and Nascar Racing.
Currently you are as likely to find Lauri painting streamside as tramping the bird fields, armed with camera and shotgun. As an Orvis endorsed fly-fishing guide she has spent days teaching clients on the water, and evenings painting their trophies. Always happy to share a fishing tale, Lauri paints the scenes that appeal to her in an attempt to share the moment with the viewer. Her discovery of ‚Äúplein air painting‚ÄĚ in recent months has added a new dimension to her painting.
A self-taught artist, Lauri works in acrylics for its ability to render details and textures, and in watercolor for its fluidity of expression. But here lately, she has rediscovered the richness and luminosity of oil paints. Although she continues to enjoy each medium for its unique characteristics, to compare acrylics to oils is similar to comparing a graphite fly rod to bamboo: one is state of the art, but manmade; the other is created of natural materials and is simply more alive‚Ä¶.
Lauri‚Äôs paintings have appeared in a variety of publications, such as: Southern Angler‚Äôs Journal; The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission; the Wildlife Art News Artists Profiles and the 2003 trout stamp for the New Jersey Anglers. She currently resides in Virginia.
