As a visionary creative, Laura explores the liminal boundaries between the known and the unknown, the visible and the invisible, the past and the collective future—searching for cracks in the facade where imagination, beauty, and magic are still alive in our world.
Coming in 2015 - The Grand Reopening of Mythic Arts
After a journey of mythic proportions through multiple states, many miles, and several abodes, I am happy to announce that I am back on Whidbey Island, where we have found a magical sunny piece of property and have completed the remodel of a 1902 farmhouse, which will also be the site of my new studio to be completed sometime in 2015!
As I manifest this new working space during these times of great transition, I continue to hold onto Jung's idea that...
"Just as the individual's conscious mind needs to be brought into greater harmony and balance with the countervailing tendencies of the unconscious, so a particular culture needs to readjust its collective perspectives through the agency of myth and symbol. It is the mythmaking artist who discovers the compensatory archetypal image that the age and culture require for greater balance."
And so I ponder, as an artist and a myth maker, what I will be dreaming forward, which will serve not only my own creative urges, but also the world at large, which is no doubt in need of some balance. The notebooks are getting full, the studio will be done soon!
