About Laurie Windeknecht Art

Welcome! I am a California artist who works in Oil & Mixed Media. I also enjoy working with Pen & Ink and even an occasional watercolor.

I currently am drawn to the rich color and the lusciousness of oil paint as a medium. I enjoy painting aerial-style views of everyday objects and life situations with a focus on compositional aesthetics and color to communicate perspective.

My current works are greatly influenced by the shapes and style of Japanese Block Printing and the color and compositions of Tom Wesselmann. I am also influenced by the richness of Maynard Dixon and Wayne Thiebaud's works.

More than anything, I just want to be able to bring a smile to someone’s face and possibly a little joy to someone’s day when they view my art.

Please feel free to browse my gallery and maybe even buy a piece (or two!). Enjoy!
