September Art Crush: Laura Dro!

Laura Dro is an artist I found via Instagram earlier this year. Every time she posts something new, I am overwhelmed. She always leaves me asking the question "how did she do that?!"

Laura grew up in Jacksonville, FL near the sunny Atlantic Beach and graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in Fine Arts. She says that growing up in Florida instilled the bright and energetic colors that influence her artwork and designs. I can definitely see the tropical influence in each of her pieces!

Always destined for a creative career, Laura has had many roles in her past that have helped develop her own unique style. Laura started out as an art teacher, then transitioned into working at an Art Consulting firm, and finally served as an Art Director at a Marketing agency prior to launching her own business- Laura Dro Designs & Art. Using her fresh and vibrant approach to create on-trend works of art and textile designs, Laura has landed several licensing and commission deals with her work. She is always looking to create new and exciting artwork in hopes of developing a look that will always bring color and life into her clients' homes!

When I asked if Laura would be my Art Crush, she so graciously agreed. "I love my job and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love.  My future goals for my business are to have it continually grow and create fresh and vibrant artwork and patterns.  The idea of having my artwork and patterns decorating other people's houses puts a huge smile on my face and makes me want to create more and more!" {I couldn't agree more!}

Laura's website: www.lauradrodesigns.com. Not only does she paint, she also has prints and a series of gorgeous lucite trays and inserts. Happy discovering!
