About Laura's Artwork

Like music, I had given up on art for many years. I was blocked by a voice in my head that said, "You're not good enough. You're not a 'real' artist."

 

During the pandemic, I was inspired to write and illustrate a children's book. Although self-doubt protested, I self-published the The Sun Is Shining in December 2020. Achieving that gave me the courage to start doing more art.

 

Now I am always studying and exploring different styles of art, and I have started offering art classes for fellow sensitive souls who may have given up on their creativity. I believe we are all artists, and I hope to inspire more people to create.

 In addition to traditional artwork, I also love to offer my art to the community through inspirational chalk messages and snow heart sculptures. There are pictures of some of my offerings below. 

I have an Instagram account that is devoted to my artwork: @living_love_designs

Artwork

While I was working on my book in 2020, I discovered alcohol-based markers. I really loved them, and they inspired me to draw more. Since then I have also started to play a lot with watercolor and fine-line pen drawings (mandalas and zentangles). 

Chalk Art

During the pandemic, I started writing inspirational chalk messages on my mom's sidewalk. Now I share the messages around her neighborhood and in other cities and states when I am traveling. 

Snow Hearts

During the pandemic, I spent a lot of time in Buffalo, NY with my mom. The long, snow-filled winters inspired me to start making snow hearts (since chalk art was not an option).  In 2022, the hearts were featured in Buffalo Rising and were also on
