Laura, a born Vancouverite, was raised on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. After graduating high school, Laura made the big move to Vancouver and attended Blanche MacDonald to pursue her dreams of becoming a certified hairstylist. She quickly found she was drawn to the modelling side of the beauty industry, and began booking with Vancouver-based photographers.
Laura has put her modelling dreams on hold for a simpler kind of life. She now lives back on the Sunshine Coast, and is expecting a baby girl at the end of October.
It has been a difficult summer for Laura, as she lost her Father in July. He was the person who encouraged her artistic talents the most, so she plans to live her life the way he imagined it for her, pursuing all goals and dreams. She is trying to remain positive and is hopeful for her future with her partner and their first child.
Laura is passionate about art and creating. When she is not drawing, painting, writing, she is styling hair at Hair Matters. It is her dream to constantly create art, in every form. She will return to modelling after her baby is born and will train to compete in a fitness competition. Laura will also continue to evolve as a Hairstylist, and artist, and plans to try her hand one day at editorial photography. Some of Laura’s hobbies include reading, working out, hiking, sketching, painting, crafting, photography, and most recently, blogging. She has a lot of dreams, and isn’t going to let anything stand in her way.
