Hello. You've reached Laura, an eccentric 20-something gal from the Bay Area California who likes to tell stories and make things.|
About Me: I grew up in the Silicon Valley area and moved over the hill to Santa Cruz, loving every minute of my hippy-dippy/beachy home. I have a tendency to be a little depressing and morbid in casual conversation (I'll try to avoid that on here) and my interests lie firmly in the triple Cs: comedic, cute, and creepy. I've gone to Cabrillo College and San José State over the past five years, studying a lot of pointless but fun general education and art, so if you want to know pointless but fun or art stuff, I've got knowledge to spare! I work at an airbrush booth at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, which is kind of like being at a crazy party every day-I never now what to expect, meet lots of people for a minute who I'll probably never see again, and usually have a good time despite minor headaches and dizziness afterward. Plus I get to draw with cool equipment all day! Both school and work give me opportunities to make more things to share here.
About my art: I seriously need to do more digital work, but for now, I like to play around with virtually every traditional medium except charcoal… messy stuff. Guache and me are starting to get along after a particularly annoying class, but it can get on my nerves too. My all-time favorite medium is watercolor but I don't use it as much as acrylics. I realized through school that I can appreciate conceptual/fine art from a distance but I'm more of a low-brow/commercial artist type. My dream is to write and illustrate my own stories and help other people with theirs, though I probably have the family curse of becoming a teacher. Time and probably a couple of college degrees will tell if my fears are confirmed…
I might not get back to you right away but if you like my work or even just want to talk, you can note me here or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
