A self-taught artist, Laura’s favorite childhood memories took place in her grandmother’s art studio, where her passion for pattern and color were born. A former elementary school teacher, and mother of four, Laura took to painting full time in 2012, drawing inspiration from other established painters, the change of seasons, and her travels. Laura’s art, playful and layered with a beautiful pastel palette, soon captured attention for its sophisticated abstract strokes and color studies. Before long, her paintings were on display at several well-known art galleries in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Atlanta.
Laura Park Designs launched in 2016 after Park began photographing her abstract designs and creating digital patterns that could be transferred to fabric. Creating pillows from her vibrant and original textiles, Park took her designs to the New York Now market trade show, and five years ago the brand was born. What began as just pillows and fabric, is now bedding, wallpaper, tabletop, paper goods, and more.
