Laurie Wigham

San Francisco, California
After nearly three decades doing graphic design and illustration in the tech industry, Laurie Wigham fell out of love with the computer and went back to making art without an undo button and getting ink stains on her fingers. She set up the SF Sketchers Meetup group 7 years ago and found that lots of other people wanted to get off their screens and look at the world with their own eyes again. She paints in the wilderness and on city streets, and her watercolors have been shown at galleries around the Bay Area. She has taught at SF State’s Sierra Nevada Field Campus, the Academy of Art University, the Cal Naturalist program, and during her artist residencies in national parks. You can see her work on her website, lauriewigham.com, and follow her @lauriewigham on Facebook, Instagram and Flickr
