My Mission: TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE by Touching Hearts, Spreading Smiles and Contributing to Peace in the World thru Art and Creativity. “Transformation” is the essence of my artistic growth.
As a child ~ I was never without a crayon in my hand. As an adult ~ the Butterfly is my signature, symbol, and spirit of my ever-evolving journey. Although fantasy, my art is the reality of my life’s experiences, and each piece that I create…often through my “Visual Journaling” has its own personal message: MY WAY OF SHARING MYSELF WITH YOU. I invite you to come fly with me. ~ Laurel “I AM an artist. I AM here to live OUT LOUD.” ~ Emile Zola
