Laura Murray
Artist, entrepreneur, teacher, and author, Laura began to experiment with color and texture in textiles in 1989. Her work, which appears in books, magazines, quilt calendars, and DVDs, includes wearable art and award-winning quilts.

Laura's passionate response to surface design led to designing her favorite images in a stencil collection, soon followed by a series of stamps, including StarBuilders, and her book, StarBuilder Inspirations. Her recent work led to the development of a technique using stamps, paintstiks, and fusible web to easily create seemingly complex designs without sewing.
