Laurie A. Sell is a Burlington artist and entrepreneur who specializes in hand sculpting unique, one-of-a-kind woodland animals out of clay. These creatures come to life under the skillful touch of the artist hand painting or glazing each piece. All of her work shows a designer’s taste. In addition to creating in clay, she enjoys photography, designs and paints wall murals, home décor, and has staged award-winning retail shop windows.
Laurie’s inspiration comes from her love for the outdoors including fishing, hiking and water sports. You will often find her kayaking on the lake. Her original and whimsical work reflects this influence.
She is an exhibiting member of Gallery 223, Lake Geneva’s finest art gallery in the historic district at 223 Broad Street. In addition, as the sole proprietor of Lake Geneva Staging Company, she often shares valuable, creative tips and staging ideas on her professional Facebook page.
Laurie is also the Co-President and Public Relations Chairperson for the non-profit home staging group Staging WIRCs. While in that group, she has been involved in a $16K makeover of Building 11 Transitional Living Center for Veterans, at the VA in Milwaukee. Laurie and fellow members also voluntarily performed a makeover of two rooms for a 13-year-old with cancer in cooperation with the group Special Spaces of Milwaukee.
