I have always loved concept illustration because it transcends language, education, mindset, experiences & age. It reaches across the aisle to close the gaps between us. It can grab attention, explain complicated subjects and convert our hard work into new clients & customers (all while we dig in the dirt with our little ones!) Illustration does the heavy lifting so we don’t have to.

 

Hello There! I’m Laura, an Illustrator, Creative Director and Mom to two super active little girls. I knew I wanted to be an artist & a mother when I was 7 years old.  But the transition into motherhood was way harder than I thought, so I leaned back into creating art after taking a maternity leave, to help me reconnect with myself and my family. That rekindled love of art is a huge part of the strategic illustration I create for clients now. I’m constantly amazed at how art can build community, communicate clearly and help us connect to those we care about.
