Laurie Wonfor Nolan

Laurie Wonfor Nolan


A graduate of the Sheridan College Illustration program, Laurie started her career as a commercial artist in 1983. She began combining those skills with her love of the land in 1996 and three years later had her first solo show of large-scale ‘plein air’ landscapes in Toronto. Her immediate approach to painting in the landscape expanded to subjects including still life, interiors and abstractions. Drawing and painting from life, both in and out of the studio, remains at the core of her art practice. 

Laurie began teaching in 2008 offering a variety of classes and workshops. 

Her studio, now located in a renovated church in Roseville (Ayr), ON, has since become a haven for painters of all levels. In addition, she is honoured to be on the faculty of the Dundas Valley School of Art. 

Awards include the Bernice Adams Memorial Award for Visual Art in 2008 and the KW Women of Distinction Award for Arts and Culture in 2011.
