Born and raised on Nova Scotia’s south shore, Laurie (Publicover) Mireau travelled from the east coast to western Canada and back again in pursuit of her studies in art and teacher education which earned her a doctoral degree from the University of Alberta in 1980.

Her extensive career has spanned nearly three decades in public and post-secondary education, including art at the elementary, middle school and university levels. She returned to her native province in 1995 to follow her dream, her first love – painting. Her work is inspired by the marine vistas and natural surroundings of her childhood.
