About Me

Laurel received her BFA in illustration from Art Center College of Design in 1992.  Since graduating she has been working freelance in every aspect of the children’s industries.  Her murals and paintings grace the walls of many homes and businesses including Michelle Pfeiffer, the neo-natal intensive care unit of Evergreen Hospital (WA), the pediatric intensive care unit of Children’s Hospital Orange County, and Rady Children’s Hospital (San Diego).  Her work spans the globe from Los Cabos, Mexico to Munich, Germany.  She has worked as an Art Director of a bi-lingual children’s book publisher, illustrated for many parent periodicals up and down the west coast, volunteered her exhibit and graphic design skills for a developing children’s museum and has illustrated the children’s book entitled “Tutu Knows Best”.

Laurel finds her inspiration from her young children and is looking forward to being author and illustrator of her next book project “Our Seven Wonders” in honor of children everywhere.
