Having started drawing from a very young age and growing up with an Art Teacher (mom) who attended Banff School of Fine Arts, Laura-Anne was always drawing and painting growing up. Her first art “gig” was painting windows at Christmas when she was 16. Dad bought her an airbrush at 17 and that was what really got her started as an airbrush artist. 
In 1991 she attended VIU for 2 years and received an Associate’s degree in Applied Arts (Graphics option).
After her first year at college she received a prestigious 1st place award, by unanimous decision, in a British Columbian, provincial-wide, inter-collegiate poster contest, against such prestigious post-graduate schools like Emily Carr College of Art & Design, “Enviro Visions”, for Enviro Expo ‘92. One thousand limited edition prints were printed and were given to each of the 1000 corporate delegates from major global companies such as Fuji, Canon and Hewlett-Packard. 
Laura-Anne was awarded the Faculty Award for Graphics upon graduation from VIU. 
Her first job out of college was designing display ads for "Yellow Pages", where she worked for three years.*yawn 
After three years she moved on and worked at many different jobs within the graphics industry, including Sicon Signs (formerly The Icon Group).
She has done work for companies such as Triumph, The Naam, Save-On-Foods, Tim Horton's, Tsubaki of Canada and Vodafone.
She loves to ride her 2022 Harley Davidson Street Bob, and wants to do more travelling. 
Some of her favourite illustrators are Norman Rockwell, Graeme Base and Norman Mingo (Mad Magazine).​​​​​​​
