Hi, I’m Laura and I’m a preservation librarian, bookbinder, and a knitter who dyes and spins her own yarn. My vision of The Mermaid Art Studio is a place where folks can come to imagine, explore and express their creative spirit. In a world where so much is digital and virtual, it is deeply gratifying to create something tangible and completely unique.
In addition to entrepreneurial spirit and artistic vision, I bring over 20 years of start up/business experience and project management skills to the Mermaid Studio. I’m a graduate of The New School and CW Post/Palmer School. I’m also the co-founder of another Long Beach & web-based business, Beach Girls Purls. My background is in project management and technology so between Denise and myself, we’ve got both the creative and business sides of the studio covered.
