Laura took her first art class at the age of 3, and by age 6 had begun formal training in visual art. This probably explains why she approaches everything as an artist first.
Laura holds a BFA in Printmaking from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) and she received numerous awards during her training at the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and the Fleisher Art Memorial of Philadelphia. Her artwork has received awards and honors worldwide, and has been published in numerous books and magazines.
Her artwork can be found online under the name Owlkeyme Arts. The name "Owlkeyme" comes from a penchant for both owls and occult pursuits, and reflects the many varieties of media that Laura works in. (Say the name "Owlkeyme" aloud, it will make more sense.)
