Born of a photographer and a seamstress, Laurie has grown up in a diverse and supportive artistic environment that has exposed her to many art and craft forms. Ambitious and entrepreneurial, she began freelance painting at sixteen-years-old. While she attended university for fine arts painting, she now uses that aesthetic to elevate her endeavors as an illustrator and comic artist.

Laurie graduated as an Honors College student at Western Kentucky University, receiving a B.F.A. in painting and a B.A. in graphic design. She continues her education through online workshops and intense personal studies.

Laurie currently resides in Louisville, KY and is available for hire as an illustrator and comic artist. Please send all inquiries to her email lauriemkwhite@gmail.com.
