About Laura Maxwell

I started as a student of art history, and then became an elementary art teacher. Watching my students create inspired me to start making art of my own. I still love history, and love to teach, but have also found my own artistic voice and can't stop creating. In creating art, I value uncertainty and spontaneity. I prefer starting artworks without having a plan, and waiting instead to see where the process leads me, one step at a time.

Laura, I hope you continue to submit artwork to minted. You are very talented and hopefully one day I can purchase a print of Patterns on Patagonia. Can't get that one out of my mind!

Thank you for your kind comments and liking my designs, I had never heard of Charlie harper and took a look, its certainly lovely, simplified work. By the way your work is beautiful, I love your penguin, this would make a beautiful art print.
