Intro and Latest News  

Welcome to my website.

You will notice that almost all of the paintings displayed have been sold. I typically do not do editions of prints. However, if you see a painting and would like to have a print, I can do a “One Off” print as an Artist’s Proof. These are museum quality Giclee prints. They run between $450.00 and $750.00 depending on the size of the print. Also, if you would like to discuss my painting a similar painting for you, please send me an email at laurinmc@aol.com. I would love to hear from you regarding questions or comments about my paintings.

All the best,

Laurin
