About

Hello, I’m Laura!

Illustrator | Lettering Artist | Designer

 

I graduated with a BFA in Illustration from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, where I gained a trained eye for technical drafting skills, understanding composition, color palettes, generating hand lettering, and emphasizing narrative details. My love of continued education, led me to my second degree from the Graphic Design program at Johnson County Community College. During enrollment I held internships with Blacktop Creative (Barkley) and C3, where I worked on a variety of projects, various client accounts and utilized my illustrative skills wherever I could.

My passion is pairing my technical skills with design. No matter what the project, I value starting concepts with pencil to paper. Nothing compares to sketching ideas to help get the creative juices flowing. Utilizing a variety of mediums such as paint, ink, graphite, pastel and cut paper are valuable materials when it comes to my creative process. I truly love a creative challenge and appreciate the process that leads to a solution.

Fun Facts you ask for? Well sure…

  • Coffee (black) keeps me alive.

  • I’m allergic to dogs, but this didn’t stop me from getting my fur baby, Zoe, an ever-spoiled Portuguese Water Dog, living the dream with her partner in crime, Winston.

  • StL Cardinals fan. Forever. Foooorreevverrrr!

  • I like molasses/spice cookies, puzzles and love watching old classic movies. I think I’m an 80 year old trapped in my body. Someone help.
