I'm a bit of hoarder...

Laurie Pettine is a fine artist/illustrator living in Mendham NJ. She graduated with a BFA Illustration from Parson School for Design/New School. After years in advertising and publishing, Ms. Pettine has been working exclusively on fine arts in the pop surrealist/visionary art style. Ms. Pettine’s work is playful and childlike; dreamscaped, yet strangely familiar. She writes, “ My mission as a visual artist is to open a window onto my off-center obsessions – fringe culture, oddball religions and pseudo-science – and present these worlds as my personal symbolic storytelling.” Ms. Pettine’s company, Chaotic Attractors, LLC is her latest contribution to pop culture – creating art toys and other related merchandise that echo her alternative art interests.
