Pebble Beach, CA

Much of Laurie Kersey’s work focuses on her life-long love, horses, but also includes the dramatic coastline and quiet countryside of California, as well as elegant florals. Her work has been included in many museum exhibitions and national juried shows across the country. She was honored with the Grand Prize in the AWA National Exhibition at the Steamboat Art Museum in 2019 and her work has also been featured in several books and magazines.

“If there’s a common thread that runs through my work, I’d have to say it’s a sense of peacefulness. Whether the subject is a quiet moment between horse and human, an untouched landscape under a golden sun, or fresh flowers from the garden... perhaps I can offer the viewer a moment of tranquility in his or her busy life.”
