Laura Mastrangelo

born and raised in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, grew up with creatives as neighbors. Living in such an historical neighborhood, with magnificent architecture and monuments, Laura would often take long walks, nurturing her artistic spirit at the local museum, gardens, park, and library. With inspiration everywhere, not to mention her weekly fix of Saturday morning cartoons and her dad’s early Sunday morning newspaper delivery of the “big” comics, Laura picked up a pencil at a very early age and never put it away. After decades of “always creating something,” focusing on Brand Strategy, Design & Product Development, Laura’s first love of drawing and illustration remains her true joy. Grateful to still be blessed as a “pencil to paper” artist, you will always find Laura’s childhood in her work.
