How long have you known you wanted to be an artist? In other words, how did you get started? 

   Always!! Came from a family of artists so I have drawn for as long as I can remember!
Tell us what you use to create your paintings. 


   My first love is pastels. I have used other medium in the past, but come back to this.
Do you have a favorite theme?


   My very favorite is paintings for and about children.
Paintings of family relationships and childhood memories. Also peaceful paintings geared for adults.
I love being out in nature

For artists starting out, what suggestions would you have for them? 


   It's important to just keep putting your work out there, let it be seen. The more artwork you create, the more comfortable you become in creating your artwork.


Here is a wonderful write up on Laurie's Esty page:
Art for Kids and Their Grownups by LaurieShanholtzer 


   Paintings of family relationships and childhood memories. Also peaceful paintings geared for adults.

   A unique feature is that each artwork can be personalized as a print. This means you can add family or friends names, their hair color and a saying or verse especially for the recipient.

   My primary career had been as a portraitist. I have literally done hundreds of portraits, Including 3 for USA Senator Evan Jenkins. Portraits has never been my first love; I now paint what I love.

   A third generation artist, my family members include my grandfather, the nationally recognized muralist, Vincent Maragliotti, (example: Philadelphia capitol dome), Aunt Iris Guarducci, a Pulitzer prize winner in portraits and my mother, Gina Tetzlaff, a prominent New York dress designer and portraitist. You can read more if you care to in the “about” section in Etsy and “ABOUT THE ARTIST” on my website.

   Please  take a look at Laurie's artwork on the links below.  There are pastel paintings, along with reproduction prints. The prints are on lovely canvases in many sizes, as well as on all cotton art paper. Also invitations and cards using my art.


Thank you for your time Laurie! Your art is beautiful!

I am not an artist, but I really want to look up on paintings and art. I envy those who are good in art and I really want to have that talent too. I also want pastels in painting because their colors are bright. I like your theme which is children. It brings back memories while looking at the paintings.

Laurie, I'll put a bug in my family's ear to remember to go to your site to buy me your note cards for the next occasion.
I love writing notes to people, it's a lost art. Now days, people are so pleased to get a card in the mail.

Thank you again for being a part of my page! It's been an honor to have you!
