Meet Lauri Koo

Throughout my life I'd always heard the phrase "stop and smell the roses" which could be taken as a metaphor to take time to appreciate the beauty around you, or the actual act of admiring roses. I finally understood both meanings and have done my best to apply them to my own life daily. I am happiest when I am out in nature exploring whatever I find fascinating or interesting whether it be a flower, a bird, a tree or an animal. 


Just a few years ago the timing and opportunity allowed me to explore more of my creative interests of photography and painting. I am inspired by the awe and beauty that surrounds me here in the Arizona desert. Come and take a journey through my lens and brush. Commissions are welcome as my schedule permits.
