Prairie Hollow Creations

Laura grew up in Shaftsbury Hollow, Vermont, and as a young adult moved to Kansas after falling deeply in love with the Flint Hills. Both landscapes -- the lush, wooded landscapes of the Green Mountains and the vast, rolling prairie of the Flint Hills -- have captured her imagination.  These vistas inspire her to create art as a means of expression, understanding and connection with others. 

Laura is a practitioner & teacher of meditation.  She is a self-trained and intuitive artist.  To Laura, the act of creating art is part of the meditative process.   Her art is created to cultivate peace, stillness, insight, wisdom and compassion. Each piece of art Laura creates can be used as a talisman, invitation & reminder to cultivate those same qualities in and around ourselves each and every day. 

An accomplished fiber artist, Laura enjoys spending time with her small herd of Pygora goats....
