My Bio

Lauri Victoria is an award winning designer, illustrator and painter. She received a BFA from Ross School of Art and has worked as a commercial artist for over 20 years. Her work is displayed in many museums and galleries.

No, none of that is true. Lauri has always dabbled in art-disney characters, animals, etc. in acrylic paint, never oil. She always wanted to master landscapes but couldn’t. Always inspired by the beauty of nature itself and Bob Ross (the happy painter) from his 80′s tv show when he would paint beautiful oil landscapes; she would always put it off and was afraid to try it.

After losing part of her hearing recently, she realized life was too short and with the encouragement from family and friends, she finally ordered Bob Ross’s dvd’s and tried his techniques. Well, today she’s a “happy” painter herself and hopes her paintings will make you happy and inspire you to do whatever you’ve been putting off wanting to do.
