Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Lorne Eckersley, publisher of the Creston Valley Advance to share my process and passion for painting along with my journey to where I am today.  

The interview is featured in this weeks "Meet Your Maker" article of the newspaper. 

The article photo is an earlier step of this painting that I am currently working on.

Fantastic Laura! What a great idea for a newspaper article - I should ask our Valley Voice to do this kind of feature. Now we need to get you on our MAKE team website with a feature on you.

Laura Leeder said...

Yes, Morgen, a great idea for your local paper! Thank You a feature on the MAKE website will be great!
