About Laura Yager
Laura Yager is an award winning & published paper collage artist. As seen on HGTV and in numerous publications, her paper artwork exudes a love for animals. In the midst of a world already overwhelmed with anxieties and fears. Laura likes to create "happy" peaceful art that brightens one's day, as well as any room. Whether it be a fluorescent pet portrait or an abstract wildlife scene, each vivid & meticulous work of art is sure to bring a smile.
Laura is currently working with the Art in Motion E&E Co. Ltd. licensing group and also welcomes custom portraits and project requests.
