Meet Lauri Koo

While growing up in the Midwest I had always loved coloring with crayons and markers and would curiously watch my mother enjoying her oil paint-by-numbers.  In grade school my instructor entered a drawing into a local fair and won first place but then life sent me into many different directions.

Just a few years ago the timing and opportunity allowed me to explore more of my creative interests of painting and photography. Nature is my favorite subject and I get lost in the awe and beauty that surrounds me, especially here in the desert. There are so many places to experience the variety of the seasons in Arizona. I am so grateful to be able to fulfill my passion and love sharing the beauty of nature through my lens. 

Commissions are welcome as my schedule permits.
