Art Appreciation

Thanks to her husband’s superb painting, I’d seen Laurie Lee Brom’s face long before I actually met her. But seeing her paintings was a different thing entirely – luminous oil portraits with a hint (or more than a hint) of the Gothic. Her work is colorful and elemental, and the same sensibility and delight at putting a raccoon into the hoops of a skirt somehow removes the inherently clichéd quality of fairy wings. It’s a fine (and beautifully scrolled) line, but she walks it very well indeed.
