About Me

Allied Artist Image3

I am Laurie Goldstein-Warren and I live in West Virginia.

I have been painting watercolors for sixteen years.  Art has always been a part of my life.  When I was young, ballet, tap and jazz dancing was my creative outlet.  I was a dancer in the Rochester Academy of Performing Arts dance troupe until the age of 18.  Later on my creative path took me to hair styling.  I opened my own salon in New York and competed in fantasy hair competitions.  I loved these particular shows because you had to create something never seen before, more avante garde than styles you would see on the street.  When I moved to West Virginia in 1998 and found myself  in the countryside, I went back to one of my first creative loves, art.


After many years of studying the art of watercolor with some fantastic teachers and mentors, I have been so fortunate to have found success in this field.  My artwork has been shown all over this country and  has been exhibited in Canada, China and Japan.  I now enjoy teaching my workshops and jurying exhibits around the country.


I found my voice in art… find yours….Create!
