Laura’s interest for needlearts began as a young girl when she sat alongside her Grandmother crocheting, sewing, needlepointing, quilting and cross stitching. While she continued to enjoy all of these crafts, Laura decided to direct her education to two dimensional art and earned her degree in Graphic Design at California State University Northridge. That design background finds its way into every canvas that Laura works on with her love for color, texture and balance uniting to enhance her approach to the piece.
Laura is a passionate teacher who collaborates with each student to bring out their personal best. She teaches weekly needlepoint classes at Aristeia Needlepoint in Santa Monica, California. In addition, Laura teaches workshops and project classes, canvas interpretation, private lessons and her own unique method classes “Themes and Schemes for Amazing Needlepoint” at needlepoint shops across the nation.
