Laura has training as an animator , though there isn't a whole lot she wouldn't be interested in doing that ties into art in some way - illustration, comics, concept art, games, Flash animation, backgrounds, prop design and construction, creature shop work, etc.

As an artist, Laura is flexible and capable of working in different styles and mediums as needed. She can work well both in groups as well as independantly. She work hard, see things to their end and make sure that what she does is the best that she is capable of. Laura is responsible, conscientious of keeping to deadlines.

Through the Tradigital Animation program, Laura has learned programs such as Adobe Premiere, and Adobe After Effects. She has some knowledge of Flash and she works with Adobe Photoshop on a regular basis. She also has training in Maya.

Laura is available for hire on a freelance basis for projects of any sort. Please contact her with your project for a quote.
