Hi, my name is Laurel and I am a
I began studying graphic design in high school and
continued to pursue a design degree in college. After a few years of schooling in Michigan I moved to Las Vegas where I finished my Bachelors degree at the Art Institute of Las Vegas and began my career in graphic design. I began working in the corporate world while building my freelance business and am currently a freelance graphic artist in Traverse City. I find it very enjoyable pulling thoughts and ideas from my clients and creating their visions through design.
In the beginning of my life my dad would buy books
with blank pages and draw in them with a black sharpie to create beautiful abstract coloring books for us. Now,
I find it hard to create anything with a "blank page", thanks dad, but I guess we have to look at the bright side. My creative thought process does not start with
a blank page, but rather a beautiful outlined drawing
of my clients visions, whether they know they see them or not, then filling them in with color.
