As seen on HGTV, Laura says her paper art boasts no hidden messages or concealed agendas. In a world already anxious & burdened down with heavy news, Laura likes to create art that lifts up, lightens and refreshes.

She doesn’t deny that the world has problems, but knows it’s unhealthy to focus on such problems twenty four hours a day. The self-taught artist’s goal is to create art reminiscent of simpler childhood times that produces a blissful escape.

Also being an animal lover, Laura draws inspiration from the animal kingdom. The limitless variety and personality of each individual creature speaks to her through vivid colors and bold patterns. And the comfort, laughter and friendship they bring into the world is something Laura hopes is seen and felt in all her work.

Laura’s methods are unlike most classically trained ¬†artists. Laura uses scissors and glue instead of paintbrushes and pigments. She cuts and shapes vivid papers into pieces to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. Not only are her artworks bright in color, but they’re large in scale also. Thus making Laura’s “happy” art impossible to ignore!
