Hi! I'm Laura, a designer/illustrator currently based in Maryland. Fittingly enough I fell in love with stationery design while creating my own wedding invitations. After a few years in the Minted school of design, I am now working on my own line of lovely paper pieces. Simply put I like all things pretty - flowers, fashion and textiles bring me endless inspiration.

Thank you for your sweet comment, Laura! It really means a lot to me :)
Laura, Thank you for all your feedback and comments during this challenge! I am big fan of your work so it really means a lot to me!!
Thank you once again Laura for all your help :) Sometimes our eyes often miss minor details after working on a particular design for so long. Thanks once again for your sweet compliments too.
Thank you Laura for your great feedback on my "Bold& Bright" entry. :) I did make the changes as you asked me. Please have a look at it when you have the time.Thanks again!
Well you never have to worry about giving feedback to me... I appreciate it so much:) Okay, I fixed the widths to be as close as possible. Better or still goofy? If you have a moment, I'd love to see what you think! Thanks again!
You.Made.My.Night ;) thanks so much!! and also for the feedback. i played with the banners, they were bugging me a little too, but not sure i resolved it.. thank again!!!
Thanks so much for your feedback Laura! Really appreciate it! That very same issue was bugging me hehe so I'll definitely try and rework it;) I'm a huge fan of your work...everything you do is a showstopper!
Thank you for such a nice note - it means so much to me coming from such an amazing designer! And your rockabye horse was absolutely gorgeous - I want to pin it on my wall it is so beautiful to look at!
Awh, Laura, thank you so much! It didn't sink in until the file requests began rolling in ;) I still remember the first wedding challenge I entered ( I got 1 editor's pick woo ) and you were one of the wedding collection winners - and I remembered being so amazed at your designs - you're still a rock star to me!
Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Laura! Totally made my day. I'm a big fan of your work as well!
thank you, Laura! That really means a lot.
I just get so lost sometimes, trying to do new / different things, it's easy to miss the big picture ;)
And your designs are breathtaking - that snow fancy is amazing!!
LOL! thank you so much for your feedback, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! :)
Aww thanks for the feeback, Laura! You've just made my day!
Thanks so much for your very sweet comment on my design, Laura!!! Made my day. :)
Laura! THANK YOU for the wonderful feedback on both my baby shower submissions! I think they are so much stronger with the tweaks you suggested. Really appreciate it <3
Thanks for your help on my Shower Script design! The bottom half of that design was a mess! :)
Just wanted to say thank you for your reassurance!! I've looked at that design to the point that I don't know if I like it anymore, so I really appreciate your kind comment!!
Thank you for your lovely comment! It means a lot :)
Thank you Laura!
Thank you Laura! That is such a lovely thing to say, I really appreciate it! :)
Congratulations on your minibook wins! Snowlace + Craft was a favorite of mine!
Congrats Laura on your minibook win. I love that design.
Laura, thanks for the nice comment.
Thank you so much for the sweet comment, Laura!
Hi Laura, thanks for your message! The more flamingos, the merrier! Love your submission
Thanks for the kind comments, Laura!! :)
Thanks for your helpful comment on my 'framed' entry. I have put up a poll with some new color options. Would love your opinion if you have a chance :)
PS your entries are stunning as always!
Your note made my day! Thank you so much. I have not been able to submit much to the last few challenges but am so excited about the holiday cards this year. Your work is, as always, impeccable.
congrats on the WINS! really great work! :)
Such lovely work in this website! I'm glad I just discovered it. I really like your invitations.
Hey Laura! Thanks so much for the feedback on my "whimsical bliss" design. I tried to change up the size of the flowers a bit but not sure it's enough. Also tried to add some spart to my design... would you mind taking a look to see if I'm headed in the right direction? Whenever you have time... :)
Laura, thank you so much for your kind comment. Such a nice reminder of what I love most about Minted–my fellow Minties!
Thank you for the sweet comment on "One Fine Day," Laura!
Thanks Laura! :)
Hi Laura, Just stumbled across your Meet a Mintie interview and loved it. It was fun to learn a bit about you and see some of your gorgeous designs. I really love your work. :) Monica
So good to see your beautiful work in the holiday challenge! Glad my rockstar friend is back at it! :) Hope your settling in well! Thanks for all the sweet compliments too - your opinion means a lot!
Hi Laura! Hope your move went smoothly + you're all settled in! Still bummed you're not in Hawaii anymore, but I'm happy for you that you're closer to family now. Great to see your gorgeous designs again! Your holiday cards are fantastic. I especially love Merry Bright & Sparkly! Your type treatment is absolutely amazing! Anyway, hope all is well with you - take care and see ya 'round! :)
Yay! How close will you be to Kansas City? I'm only 3 hours away. I'd love to get together! Best wishes on your move. I can't imagine that it would be super easy to move all your stuff off an island. :)
Aww, thanks Laura! It was so nice meeting you too! Yeah, I'm bummed you're leaving! It would be fun to do our own little unofficial Oahu Mintie meet ups from time to time. Maybe we'll have to do one again right before you leave! Haha, yes paints n brushes and the beautiful (sometimes) mess they make... I can't live without em! You have some gorgeous designs up here on Minted by the way! And I love the "painterly" touch you've brought to some of yours yourself, like Bougainvillea and Mixed Floral--I think that's quite an accomplishment in good graphic design, great job. And I LOVE your pop paisley design! And how funny you say that about screen printing at Linekona, because that class was literally the first artsy thing I signed up for last year when I got to the island!! Yeah it was great. I wouldn't mind taking it again sometime actually. I've been going to the Friday figure drawing group at Windward CC lately, enjoying it and enjoying meeting all the great artists there... Best of luck to you in these upcoming challenges as well! Hit me up too anytime, and let me know if you'd ever wanna come out and draw some Friday! :) firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Laura, it was great meeting you at the Honolulu Meetup. Thanks for all the great tips and encouragement!
I'm sure that monogram will be a winner so you will probably have a chance to change it later if you want to. :) Thanks for the note. It's fun to have you back doing challenges!
Thanks for the encouragement Laura! So, THE founder is hosting this? Gulp. I will probably turn into a puddle of a mess, but I'll plan on being there - so, please don't base your opinion of me on that! :) Are you running in the Aloha Run by chance? My hubby and I will be running, so a super early morning for us. Must fit in a nap before the meet up. I am so looking forward to meeting you then!
Aloha Laura! Thank you so much for saying hello (I've totally been meaning to send a message to you since I noticed you were a fellow island-dweller, but I never got the courage to write. Thanks for breaking the ice!!). I'm so new to this and would LOVE to meet other Minties and get involved. I did see the meet-up scheduled, just wondered if it was okay for a total newbie to come... And thank you for your comment, I wish you luck on your entries as well!
Small world! I graduated from Advertising in 2002. How about you?
Hey Laura, I'm so glad that "Simple Scallop" won a special award. It was my absolute favorite in the competition!
Hey Laura! Your sweet comment on my harvest moon design made my day! I think of you as "THE" wedding designer phenom, so I appreciate your comment : )

Thanks so much for your sweet feedback on my holiday designs, Laura! I hope things are going well for you with hubs away. I got so much designing done when mine was gone last year :D
Hi Laura. I just saw your beautiful entry "Cheerful Love and Joy" and wanted to mention that if you're intending to quote "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", the phrase should read "love and joy COME to you. Just mentioning it because your design is so lovely, but the phrase just felt a little off.
Thank you for the compliments!
Thanks for the feedback!
And thanks for liking my birdie illustration too!! :)
Thanks Laura for the compliment on my Three Crows design! Your work is so beautiful; I really admire your use of color and shapes.
