ARTISTS STATEMENT

My paintings are color infused interpretations of my favorite subject, dogs.

The dogs are representational, but I like use a pallet of vivid colors. The colors represent how I see dogs; as incredibly life-giving and love-giving creatures. The values dogs hold in a person’s life are endless.

My work is a contemporary vision of ideas from humanity and our relationships with dogs.

Each painting has a storyline that inspires me to create them. Whether it is a certain look or expression that speaks to their human friends, a special game they like to play, or just a pure friendship, dogs teach us to be better humans.

I create my paintings to inspire people to continue to try to be better humans.

My purpose for creating art is to remind the world that there are still many treasures in life to discover and hold dear as individuals. I would like my work to create a common ground among people of many different backgrounds, bringing them to love and tolerate each and all living things as having their
own important role in the world.

ABOUT LAURIE CARZOLA

Laurie Carzola is an artist and educator. Her inspirations to be an artist began with her family, whom supported her as she continued to grow as an artist.

“I feel like I grew up in the best of both worlds, being able to celebrate my Cuban culture while living in the greatest country in the world. I have been influenced by the artists in my family, my grandfather, self-taught artist, being one of them.

Along with the artists in my family, we come from a long
line of educators. Many of us are educators presently. Everything I have become has been a natural transition in my life.”

Carzola is a native Floridian, born in West Palm Beach. She was a student at Palm Beach Community College and graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a bachelor of fine arts degree.

“I have developed skills and a unique style over years of watching and learning from others. Without them I would not have grown. Being an educator has pushed me to continue growing and changing even more so.”

Laurie has been teaching at Westward Elementary, in West Palm Beach, for the past four years. She believes in arts education being a necessary part of a “whole person’s” education.

Her purpose for creating art is to remind the world that there are still many treasures in life to discover and hold dear as individuals. She would like her work to create a common ground among people of many different backgrounds, bringing them to love and tolerate each and all living things as a having their
own important role in the world.
