Laurie Snow Hein

Laurie Snow Hein - Although Laurie Snow Hein has always drawn, when her kindergarten teacher asked if she was going to be an artist, she replied that "no", she planned to be a doctor. Her talent was inescapable, though, as both parents, a grandmother and brother were also artistic. A mother of six and an avid animal lover, Laurie Snow Hein's favorite subjects are children and animals. She says her love for nature and the challenge of portraying the beauty of God's creations keep her painting. At home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Laurie Snow Hein carries her love for animals into the ring, raising show horses, goats and chickens.
She began her venture into art by coloring sepia-tone photographs for her dad's studio at the age of eight. Laurie Snow Hein studied with a well-known illustrator through high school and received a full scholarship to Columbus College of Art and Design.
Laurie Snow Hein refers to her style as "Old-World Realism," but her technique often gives way to abstract or impressionistic forms. Laurie Snow Hein’s love of children and animals reveals itself in her sensitive, creative works.
