We’re suckers for colorful prints and patterns, so when we saw artist Laura Dro‘s eclectic and cheerful work we were smitten. A lifelong artist, Laura spent time working various creative jobs before founding her own company, Laura Dro Designs, and launching seasonal lines of her colorful products. With its tropical flowers and eye-catching hues, there’s something about Laura’s work that just makes us smile! Fortunately, between the prints, original paintings, and monogrammed Lucite trays available from Laura Dro Designs, incorporating her bright and playful aesthetic into your home is a snap. During our Q&A session with Laura, she provided plenty of insights about the behind-the-scenes aspects of her business, and her artistic inspirations.
When did you start Laura Dro Designs?
Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to grow up to be an “artist.” I’ve never been able to put down the paintbrush and I’m still that way! After a lifetime of creating all types of artwork and experimenting with various medias and working various jobs in the art industry, I finally honed in on what I wanted my artwork and brand to stand for in 2009 and that is when I decided to launch Laura Dro Designs.
What inspired you to launch your own business?
The inspiration for my artwork has always been centered around creating fresh, vibrant and eclectic work. I felt that I had something new and different to bring to the art world. I put so much passion and energy into every piece that I do, and I wanted to share that with as many people out there as I could. I am constantly producing new collections of artwork, prints and patterns with the hopes that I can continue to expand and grow, so I can bring color and vibrancy to everyone!
