"I have always dreamed of having a family heirloom to pass on to grandchildren and great grandchildren, an heirloom that could help tell the story of those who came before . . . When Laura shared her fairytale portrait concept, I knew right away that it would be the perfect manifestation of that desire. The portraits Laura created of our daughters so fully capture the dreamy moments and the magical possibilities that have defined their childhood here in the country. Working with Laura was a rich and creative process and one where our ideas as a family were celebrated and realized through her artistry. These portraits are such precious gifts for our family and we are privileged to have received them."

-Lauri Brunton, M. Ed.



" I commissioned Laura to create five incredibly detailed paintings of rare Goddesses that have previously never been represented in such detail or in keeping with my spiritual tradition.  From my meditations, I shared with Laura the images I’d like to see come to life on the canvas.  She was able to visually and energetically convey their essence, and now these images travel the globe bringing healing to many people.  Overall Laura is an exceptional artist. She listens well and was extremely patient while I gave many rounds of feedback.  Laura took my often subtle, and sometimes vague critiques and was able to transform them into concrete actions to move the paintings toward a greater coherency and enhanced beauty.  I highly recommend Laura on all levels!"

"My husband and I had the pleasure of commissioning Laura to paint a portrait of our daughter Bo.  From start to finish, this project was an amazing experience. Laura is so lovely and so talented, and an absolute gem to work with.  The completed piece, I can only describe as magical.  Hanging in our daughter's bedroom, the painting brings joy and beauty to our home every day."

Thank you so much for the painting you did for Berkeley.  You absolutely nailed it.  We could not have imagined it coming out any better.  We appreciate your taking the time to talk with us ahead of time to get a good feel for what we were looking for.  The phone calls and sketches along the way were great!  The attention to detail is excellent and we could not be happier with the final product.  Great job, we look forward to the next one!"
