As a child, Laura played with her three siblings in an enclosed garden outside of Paris, learning how to invent a fantasy world from the world around her. She formally studied metals at Massachusetts College of Art, where she received her BFA, and received her MFA from Kent State University, where she studied with sculptor and metal smith Bruce Metcalf. It was at Kent State, in the quiet, timeless life of a graduate studio, where Laura returned to her own enclosed garden and developed a personal vocabulary that continues today in any medium.
