Laura started designing textiles 27 years ago. Until that time, she was a student of many early American crafts. She made miniature dioramas, leather belts and clothing, jewelry, quilts, “antique” Christmas ornaments and textile compositions. Her many creative ventures led her to the world of textile design that is her central focus today. This gallery of illustrations and paintings represent the designs as originally conceived by Laura which were used for designing pillows and rugs in her current collection.
