Coeur d’Alene Galleries “Miniatures by the Lake” Show

I’ve been meaning to mention the wonderful feedback I’ve had during the Coeur d’Alene Galleries “Miniatures by the Lake” Show. Before the event someone contacted me about one of my pieces. Later they told me that during the Silent Auction, all their family members put a bid in my box, hoping to increase their odds as the box was overflowing with bids! I was thrilled to hear that, and so glad that those people did end up with the painting! Thanks you Thams!

    Laurie,
    We have the painting Lily Pad Cove that we were lucky enough to have beeen able to purchase at the Coeur D’Alene Galleries Miniture Show hung in our home. It is beautiful and adds a great feeling to the room. It is amazing how an original piece of art and the story of how you were able to obtain it makes for wonderful conversation with friends and guests.
    Thank you again,
    Gary & Karen Thams

About Me

Stevens’ work reflects the small daily wonders of the land she calls home: the first crocus of spring, the resilient beauty of the plains, or that special sense of hope and possibility that is only found in the West. Stevens is also interested in regional history, particularly the interactions of Native Americans and white settlers during the Reservation Period. Many of her paintings are an exploration of this dynamic and a meditation on the “taming of the West.” From Billings, MT, Laurie began her career as an artist in Los Angeles where she spent 12 years working for the entertainment industry as a scenic artist and muralist for television, theme park, theater and movie productions. She spent time as a member of the Walt Disney Imagineering team, lending her talents to many Disney theme park projects worldwide. She also did some set design, illustration, and matte paintings for several animated childrens’ movies. In the 1980’s Stevens returned to her native Montana, first to the mountains near the Scapegoat Wilderness and then to the ranch near Great Falls where she currently lives and works.
