My name is Laurie A. Masters (hence "LAM"). I am from Peterborough, ON, Canada. I am primarily a portrait artist, but I also do abstracts and I design and make dolls. Being a huge music fan and film/tv buff, my subjects are mostly musicians and actors. I did a portrait of Ellen Degeneres which I sent to her, and it appeared on her talk show twice, once in a segment with Jennifer Aniston and a second time when Ellen took viewer art to the MET in NYC. I have also done portraits of Flight of the Conchords and Tom Lennon (RENO 911!, 17 Again), both of whom posted my work to their Myspace and Facebook pages, and both of whom I've met (Tom actually recognized me and called me by name when I met him in Los Angeles!) I have won some awards for my paintings, had an entire article written about me in a local paper after my first participation in an art show, I am saught after for commissions, I have a Facebook fan page ("Laurie's Art") currently with 278 members and I have a solo show of my paintings and dolls happening right now in Ennismore, ON, Canada.
