"Bringing Art to the People and People to the Arts"

Laurie Flanagan ~ Salem, SC

Laurie Flanagan has been a high school English teacher, an adjunct composition professor, a business analyst, and a director of technology training. But the career that really stole her heart is her family – as wife to Kevin, mother of three sons, and grandmother of seven. Laurie has written poetry and essays her entire life but has only recently discovered watercolor. She hopes to find joy in painting with a community of artists.
