Laura's love of mural painting and collaborative art-making events began as a Peace Corps Volunteer, painting murals for elementary schools in Lesotho, Africa, and since then, she has led many classes and workshops, and completed commissions for businesses, non-profits, and residential clients. She loves exploring intersections within art and business communities.
