merry-4-acrylic-12x16I found Laurie Near during a search for “Canadian Artists” while preparing art projects for primary grades.

How lucky for me.

Laurie’s work gives me the feels and they make me want to buy her stuff.

Lucky for her. Bad news for me since her work is priced between $300 – $3500… and most of the work I want is in the higher range.

Ah well… here’s Laurie Near and her abstracted expressionist nature works.

If you’d like more of Laurie, check her out on the internet:

  • Website – notice how Laurie has put “Canadian Artist Laurie Near” as her website tag/title? That’s probably how I found her while searching for Canadian Artist – that’s good website SEO.
  • Facebook page

All work is ©Laurie Near and can be found on her website.
