Laura is not just an artist, most people describe her as a jack of all trades. She has been an artist all her life, but never really saw herself as one.
Laura was born in Connecticut and has lived in several states throughout the U.S. She was always the new kid that everyone wanted to meet. Her first childhood dream career job was to be the first woman President; later her dream career was to become a Supreme Court Justice all the while taking art courses and excelling in them. She started out Pre-Law at Western Michigan University, but art starting to call to her and she attended Kendall College of Art and Design. After a few years and no more money, she entered the RV career world until the 2008 recession. She returned to college and decided to take a career that would use both her skills in the art world and her experience in the business world and graduate as an Art Director.
She continues to explore and expand her talents and is a proud member of City Center Arts where she is a dedicated Art Director.
Artist Statement: Be Bold!
Be bold is the statement of and focus of my pieces. Being bold to choose what to say or not say, Being bold in expressing through loud colors and shapes, being bold to a world that wants you to “Be Calm”, complacent and settled only to gain nothing more than what people give when they want to care about you. I hope my pieces inspire people to take space for themselves, to take the risk to ask for fulfillment in your life, to advocate for balance in your life, to have bright colors and solid boundaries in your life. Be Bold with life!
