Maureen Lacoste Stratton holds both an RN and Exercise Physiology degree. After a successful career as COO of the medical management business she started and operated for 14 years she was able to turn to her true desire; painting. She quickly evolved and noted that her passion lay primarily in landscape oils.
Native Californian, Laura Wambsgans began landscape oil painting sixteen years ago, after working as the managing director of a major recording studio and then as a sculptor for two decades. Between studying intensely with Scott Christensen, among well-respected landscape painters and painting daily, Wambsgans strives to capture the effect of light on the land, though color and paint quality. Since 1986, Wambsgans' work has been exhibited nationally in solo and group exhibitions.
