Laurie Pace The Five Graces


As splintering light fractions into thousands of colors, Laurie's journey in life has encompassed many careers from runway model to graphic artist, from musician to singer, from teacher to artist. She believes the greatest influence in her life is the beauty God provides daily.

A degree in Art, eight years with an advertising agency, and twenty-five years teaching art has come full circle to top honors yearly at international art shows in oil, watercolor and photography. Viewing a Laurie Justus Pace painting is a rich experience that drips with color and emotion.  Her passionate works are alive with movement, boldly created with a wide brush and a palette knife.  She loves working with oils, dramatically carving out the paint and transferring her energy to the canvas and ultimately on to the viewer. Pareidolia is the name for what happens when Ms. Pace gazes at her thickly applied strokes of oil paint and begins to visualize equine forms.  It's the same term used to describe the phenomena of seeing animals in clouds or faces in the moon.

Laurie is co-founder of Contemporary Fine Art International, The Artists of Texas, The Daily Painters of Texas and The Five Graces. Other memberships include International Equine Artists, The American Watercolor Society, Professional Published Fine Artists  and she is an associate member of  WAOW and the Oil Painters of America. Laurie is a listed artist on askart.com and artprice.com. In addition, she has exhibited with the Dallas Committee of the Fine Arts in Dallas. Internationally private collectors, senators, ambassadors and large corporations select her work to decorate their homes and offices.  Her artwork has been published and featured in numerous magazines, newspapers and books. 

You can find her work in Mirada Fine Art, Denver, ColoradoThe Rare Gallery, Jackson, Wyoming; The SR Gallery, Hong Kong; Earth Works Art Gallery, New York; The Gillian Jones Gallery, Ohio; Daily Painters, Our House Gallery, El Dorado Hills, CaliforniaThe Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, Texas

Pace resides in Mt Vernon, Texas with her husband Terry, and two Kerry Blue Terriers Annie and Paddy. She began riding horses as an early age at a nearby stable in the heart of Dallas, near White Rock Lake. This love continued through her adult life and now she is able to enjoy the horses at the Fletcher Ranch in Mount Vernon, Texas.

She has been a featured artist in Western Art Collector, the Appaloosa Journal, American Art Collector and Cowboys & Indians.

"My art is a gift which comes through God; with this gift my paintings give on to you part of life's energy with a simple glimpse from His creation."     Laurie Justus Pace
