Artist Bio

Laurie Hatch is an artist whose primary objective and artistic ambition is to carry on the tradition of the great American Impressionist. Her medium is oil, and subject matter tends to favor landscapes.

Laurie has a special kinship with nature, which is clearly confirmed in her work. Her impressionist style and pallet present a sense of “being there” while allowing the imagination of the viewer to interpret the painting using personal observation and memories. Laurie seeks to suggest, rather than precisely define the subject.

Painting since her teens, Laurie studied in Western New York with Carl Illig, a friend and painting companion of Emile Gruppe. Ill studied with Arthur Kowalski, a student of Alexis Fournier, was a painter of the Barbican School. This gives her a solid foundation in the Impressionist method.

Originally from Western New York, Laurie now lives and works in The Upstate, South Carolina. She has exhibited in juried shows and private galleries in New York, Texas, Palm Beach, Florida. She was awarded “Best in Show” at the Buffalo, NY Fine Arts League , selected for presentation at Amado Pena’s El Taller Gallery in Austin,TX, and KLRU Founders Show in Austin, TX, Westgate Gallery, Austin, TX, as well as numerous other shows. Her work resides in the Permanent collection of AT&T, Dell Web Corporation, City of Austin, as well a private owner collections. 

"As a painter of the Impressionist School, my objective is to suggest a scene to the viewer, supplying perhaps the shape and color value while allowing details to be drawn by the viewers own imagination and memory.

My hope is that the viewer can place himself in the painting. If, through my art, I am able to spark memories for the viewer of a certain place and time, I know I have accomplished what I set out to do."
