Laura was born in New Orleans, Louisiana but moved to Houston as a young girl. She began her
study of painting at the age of eleven with private art lessons and has focused her studies on

1996 with a B.A. in Art along with a teaching certification and immediately began teaching art at the
high school level.
After many years of teaching and raising her two sons Laura has recently turned her attention
towards expanding her own artistic vision and further developing her style.
