i'm on a mission

To help small business owners grow and thrive with beautiful, captivating creative.

i believe

Women should feel empowered to build businesses that allow them to do life on their own terms.

Hi, I'm Laura.

I’m a storyteller—I use design, illustration and words to tell the colorful, joyful story of YOU. 

After 15 years working in corporate marketing--both client side and agency side--I realized that the creative side projects I did for small businesses or friends brought me real joy. 

When my son was born, I realized it was time to make the jump: to CREATE REAL FLEXIBILITY TO BE PRESENT WITH MY family, and to show my son (and myself!) what it means to follow your passion.

I’m so grateful for my time in the corporate world because it helped me develop the ability to work with lots of different kinds of clients, and to think strategically about the bigger picture. (Traveling the world was also a nice perk.) Now though, I’m happiest working from my studio or my favorite coffee shop down the block.

I’ve spent the last 5 years saying YES to so many fun creative endeavors with women who inspire me daily--and lots of time on the floor with my boys and a giant pile of legos.

My personal and entrepreneurial journey over the last few years has been a roller coaster: we welcomed our second son and, with the rest of the world, navigated the uncertainty and chaos of the last few years. Oh, and we got a puppy! All the while…

I transitioned away from my corporate job, and since then I've built up my business helping women express themselves and their businesses through illustration and design.

- I’ve worked with inspiring brands like Kendra Scott, Macy’s and St. Germain, illustrating live for in-person events.

-I’ve partnered with the most incredible, passionate women to create visual branding that reflects their mission and purpose with color and joy.

-I’ve illustrated three books with Harvest House Publishing and designed a line of greeting cards available in Europe with Roger La Borde. 

-And just as fun: I’ve worked with hundreds of beautiful women and families creating custom portraits.

Here's my story.

MY heart

It has been the ride of a lifetime, and I believe that the privilege to work creatively while learning the ropes of parenthood and navigating the pandemic has saved me in more ways than one. I can't wait to see what the future has in store.

Thanks for being here.

xo, Laura

that we live in a time of unprecedented opportunity for women to build their own businesses and dreams.

10 minutes of quiet meditation and reflection every day will change your life.
