Biography from ArtSanDiego:
Laurie Kersey, of Pebble Beach, California, was born on January 26, 1961 in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada.  She is known for her plein-air landscapes, Equestrian images and still life renditions.

Kersey began her art career at an early age including a long career of art shows at the young age of 13, accompanying her mother, a skilled watercolorist, to shows throughout Eastern Ohio.  After graduating from high school she was awarded a full scholarship at the Chataugua Institute in Chataugua, New York.  Her commercial art career began when she enrolled at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.

For several years she worked as a layout artist at Project Merchandising in Cleveland, and as a comprehensive Production Artist at Rainbow Grinder in Pittsburgh.  In 1985 she moved to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  There she was employed as an Art Director/Illustrator at Advertising Design Services in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.

In 1993 she moved to Sedona, Arizona and joined the Eaton Associates as an Art Director/Illustrator.  During her illustration career she produced work for the National Park Services, Ramada Inns, Days Inns, and Harlequin Books.  As time went by she realized that fine art, not commercial art, was where her heart was.

In 1997 she enrolled at the Academy of Art in San Francisco with the intent of pursuing a full time fine art career.  After completion of her studies she was offered a teaching position, which she maintains until this day.

Kersey has exhibited widely throughout her career.  She has exhibited with the Hudson Valley Art Association, California Art Club, Carmel Art Festival, Artist's Magazine's Annual competition, American Women Artists, Oil Painters of America, to name a few. She was recently (2002) named the "Best Landscape" artist by Artist's Magazine for her plein air depiction of La Jolla Cove.  She has been an Honorable Mention winner at the Carmel Art Festival, and recently at the 1st Annual San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival.

Kersey is a member of the Oil Painters of America, California Art Club, Hudson Valley Art Association, and the exclusive Northern California Painters Group.  She is represented by Westbrook Galleries in Carmel, California; K. Nathan Gallery in La Jolla, California, and others.
