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 one of my drawings into a local fair that won first place but then life sent me on many different paths.

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 am inspired by the awe and beauty that surrounds me here in the Arizona desert. I am so grateful to be able to share my passion and love of nature through my brush and lens. Commissions welcome as my schedule permits.
