Laura is the kind of person that loves simple things and enjoys the little pleasures. She's an extraordinary artist who draws sweet portraits and makes art with soft colors. The workspace she uses for creating amazing illustrations is a beautiful room filled with art, neutral colors and the most incredible tiles in the world.
Always looking for natural materials, she enjoys being surrounded by crayons, blocks, brushes and making art pieces with them. The light is her inspiration—soft, sweet and warm light.
She wants a place where she can work but also entertain friends or clients— where they can relax and share the space with her. The room has a kind of harmony that invites you to stay calm. Laura loves to work here. She doesn't have too many things, just what's necessary. Plants are a really important component; she thinks you can never have too many and that they give a lot of personality to a place. Without doubt, she has created an inspirational and creative space where she can enjoy her big passion: painting.
