Laurine has been creating as long as she can remember.
She combines a passion for art and love for people to facilitate the rediscovery of her students’ best self, through the designing and delivery of programs that is customized for each individual’s personal journey.
Thus giving joy, hope, growing self esteem and making everyone feel that they matter and can achieve anything they put their mind to.
Art for Laurine is like breathing. She can’t be without it. “It’s the best gift to give yourself and others.”
You relax, recharge and learn about your inner self.
Laurine mainly paints mixed media portraits of fictional people for her own personal self care. Her love for colour and texture is vibrant and playful and she never runs out of new creative ideas to keep her students interested and excited about what is coming next.....
She has won many awards and have done various exhibitions across the world. She has been the arts and craft facilitator at a local mental health community organisation and the difference art makes in students lives, is a reward money can’t buy.
