Laurie became a photographer by default. She studied photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology in order to have something to fall back on, in the event that her waitressing career hit a stall. Fortunately for diners everywhere, she is currently working full time as a photographer and a film director working on television commercials.
Based in Chicago, she is currently obsessed in investigating the narrative and the drama of the everyday object.
Recent exhibits include, Liberia Galleria Il Museo del Louvre in Rome , Loyola University the Judy Saslow Gallery ,Northwestern University and the Arlington Arts Center in Virginia.
