About Laura

Medium, scale, and delivery are critical components of every project. Her process begins in her extensive journals filled with notes, scribbles, ramblings, and inspiration. Form and function are always considered during initial image making.

She owns Laurel Tree Bindery and has a BFA in photography from University of Illinois. The disciplines she works in are photography, collage, book arts, installation, performance, printmaking, and film making. In addition, she is passionate about building communities, sharing skills, mentoring, and teaching.
