Juror: Laurie Wonfor Nolan

A graduate of the Sheridan College Illustration program, Laurie started her career as a commercial artist in 1983. Combining those skills with her love of the land, she began painting in 1996. Three years later she had her first solo show of large scale ‘plein air’ landscapes in Toronto. Although, painting in the landscape continues to be a large part of her art practice, new subjects, ideas and inspiration propel her work as an artist.

Laurie began teaching in 2008 offering a variety of classes and workshops at the Cambridge Centre for the Arts, Dundas Valley School of Art, as well as in her loft studio in Hespeler, ON.


Laurie’s work can be found in corporate and private collections in Canada, USA, Italy, Germany and Austria.

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

Today, Laurie’s residence, studio and gallery space are located in a renovated church in beautiful Roseville (Ayr), ON. Chapel Studio has become a haven for artists and art lovers. Mentorship programs, private sessions and specialized workshops are offered during this time. The Gallery is open for private appointments unless otherwise posted.
