My work has been seen and sold throughout Australia and internationally, and most people know that each piece is unique and quite popular. ; The distinctive "Laurie Collins" styling is reflected throughout the vast range of artwork I produce, from painting to drawing and my core junk sculpture work.
I am active in the local community and I support the many art shows and community events within Gippsland and surrounding regions. Jindivick is where I live and it is a beautiful setting in which to work and you can do worse than come and visit as there are lots of local artists and other local attractions.
