This is my face, if you ever see me, say hi! Or avoid eye contact. Up to you.

I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil. And I've been loving cats since the beginning.  Consistency, an important trait.

Cats and body positivity. From my first illustrated manuscript - 1992

Hi. I'm Laura. Nice to meet you!

It all started in the third grade.  I'd had a couple years experience on my back in finger painting, macaroni art, and handprint stamps on mugs I'd given to my mom for her birthday (and christmas…and mother's day…), so obviously, when my teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said, "A stand-up comedian." A year later, I said, "An egyptologist." I really didn't settle on artist until I realized that calculus class wasn't required for college.  

Since then, I've gone back to my roots and perfected my use of safety scissors and eating paste. I make images that ignite a child's imagination and remind adults that you're never too grown up to be a kid. When I'm not checking out new brands of non-toxic craft glues, you can find me walking dogs in the neighborhood, running races I haven't properly trained for, and cranking out more recipes in my crockpot than your mom. I live and work out of my tiny California apartment where you'll usually find me with paint in my hair and tiny pieces of paper stuck to my clothes.

In the past few months, I've become so busy I've had to hire a couple of feline assistants, King Tut (see, I told you I wanted to be an egyptologist) and Baker.  They help with eating scrapes of paper I've dropped on the floor and making sure my keyboard still works by breaking it every few weeks.  Thanks, guys. I don't know how I'd do it all without you.
