Laurel Burch Range
ABOUT LAUREL BURCH.
At the age of 14, Laurel Burch left her tumultuous home life in Southern California with nothing more than a paper bag of clothing and the rare bone disease osteopetrosis, that she was born with.
Laurel was a self-taught painter. She saw herself as a folk artist, telling stories. The universe of her imagination was fertile, burgeoning, uplifting, egalitarian, a place where every flower and dragonfly was transformed into something...magical and beautiful.
On September 13, 2007, Laurel passed away due to complications from the bone disease, osteopetrosis.
