About

Laura loves partnering with brands that want to make the world a warm & welcoming place to live. She has created unique artwork for clients such as KEVA Style, Capital One, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The University of Texas Fine Arts Center, and Richmond Ballet, among others.

Inky Richmond, Laura’s award-winning upscale activity book highlights some of the most beloved sites and landmarks in her hometown. Travel is a major influence in her life and work. Her most recent solo gallery show, Drawn to Place (2019), revealed the stories she finds in the architecture, history, and people that inspire her travel sketchbook artwork.

Laura’s proposal for a series of public sculptures was selected as one of 20 finalists in the 2019 Monument Avenue: General Devotion/General Demotion National Competition. Designers presented proposals for positive alternatives to Confederate monuments lining a major avenue in Richmond, Virginia.
