"Heaven, I'm in heaven and my heart beats so that i can hardly speak, when we're out together dancing cheek to cheek,"
This work is part of the "You are my number 8" series, a series about love, human connection and the universal experience. Mixed media on gessoed water color paper, these pieces represent your most favorite greeting card of all time on steroids. Laurie Maves has been painting abstracted figures for over a decade. The faces - especially the eyes - run together and cross over, signifying a merging of person to person as well as symbolizing the oneness of humanity. We are all one. Laurie implements handwriting in her artworks and utilizes free writing of her own poetry on most of her artworks with looping messages about love, hope and faith.Laurie Maves' latest series of circular abstracts are based on the conceptualization of healthy cells and the oneness of humanity. Simply called the Circle Paintings, this series in particular has been created to inspire others to love and to health. They are meant to be meditative in nature, organic reminders of perfect wholeness in the universe. The shape is an ancient symbol and can be seen in every culture, in every person, in every life that comes full circle. She hopes that her audience finds these paintings as promoting positive energy, relationships and peace.

Laurie Maves has always been an artist. She spent her childhood with her family in Freeport, Illinois, along with her larger-than-life imagination, always creating her own reality (often to the chagrin of her small town midwestern parents). There was nothing more she wanted to do, than to make something out of nothing. And if she could make something beautiful, she saw herself as a superhero. While living in Denver, Colorado in the late 1990's, Laurie took a leap of faith and gradually transitioned from her profession in the non profit sector as an art therapist to that of a full time fine artist and live performance painter. She opened a painting studio and began painting live at public concerts and music performances. She quickly gained clients and commissions and began developing her small art business, living her dream. Twenty years and 10,000 hours of working her craft later, largely a self taught artist, Laurie has enjoyed all aspects of owning her own business as a creative. After nearly two decades of living and working in the Rocky Mountain Region of Colorado, she relocated to the Suncoast of Florida. Currently she lives and works in Sarasota, with her husband, Ralph Guglielmi and their two cats and their award winning Puggle. If she's not painting, you can find her either fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, or beach-combing the shores of Venice Beach and Siesta Key, finding joy and appreciation in her every day experiences.
