About Laura Hankins

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.

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... :)

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! :) cdreamerdesigns@gmail.com

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!

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.

Laura, Thanks for all those kind comments! I think you and I have one common thing in our work is our perfection for detailing. Your work is amazing and with this holiday challenge, I just love with what you come with. It's always fresh and fun and so glad to hear you won the Quilted Best of the Best, congrats!

Guess what? I'll be in Honolulu in June. I'd love to meet up with you if you'll be free. Going for my grandparents 50th anniversary and we're celebrating and staying at Ko'olina.

Laura, thank you thank you! I was thinking the same about your entries!! Your website is GORGEOUS! I'm jealous ; ) I love the type and the delicate flowers - I've got to ignore this next challenge so I can make my site - Anyway, I hope to see many of your entries in the top 10!

Hi Laura, Thanks for the sweet note! I love your quickly-growing minted collection and took a look at your website as well. It looks like you are doing a little rebranding . . . I am excited to see the finished Duncan Park Papers website! The color palette and little floral illustration are perfect.
