I'm so glad you're here!

They say business isn’t personal, but in my case it the best way possible.  My name’s Laurie Russell and this is the part where we get to know each other a bit better.  I’m a professional Graphic Designer from the Pacific Northwest.  I’ve worked with a variety of clients, from large companies, to small startups, to individuals and small businesses - in many industries - over the past 15 years.


I put together a fun video about my schooling and my journey to becoming a designer over on my YouTube channel and you can watch that here:

I love being able to help someone overcome their fear of failure or thinking that they’re not creative… I believe that everyone has something in them, some spark of creativity, that they can tap into.  You may just need a little help getting started - a blank paper or computer screen can be intimidating!  I have a bunch of new tutorials and courses in the works to share my love of art and illustration with you.

COMING SOON: Procreate assets + online courses to help you take your creativity to the next level.  Click HERE to join my mailing list to stay up-to-date on news and also get some free digital goodies!

Whether your a beginning artist or further along in your journey, doubts and creative ruts can happen to us all.  Have you struggled with any of these? (If so, you're NOT alone! 😉)


Do you doubt your artistic abilities?  It's common to feel uncertain about your skills, especially if you're a beginner.  You may wonder, is my art "good enough?"

Does your mind ever feel blank?  You may struggle to come up with fresh ideas or find inspiration for your art.  This can cause frustration and even discourage you from expressing your creativity.

Maybe you're overwhelmed by the basic fundamentals of art - it's a lot! (color theory, layout, typography, perspective, composition, etc.)  You know that learning these skills will allow you to bring your creative visions to life, but you don't know where to start...

I've got GOOD NEWS for you!  I started this business so that I could help aspiring artists explore their creative side, express their ideas through art and unlock their true potential.  Our supportive community is a judgement-free place where you can learn and grow in your artistic skills and share your journey with other artists.  As you watch the tutorials and courses, you'll build confidence in your own artistic abilities, break through creative blocks and reignite your imagination. 

This is why my motto is "I help ideas take flight!"


At this time, I’m not working one-on-one with clients, because I’m focusing on empowering Creators to make their own digital art and designs, and actually have fun doing it!


NOTE: I do have a few limited spots for freelance projects in graphic design, marketing, and video editing, so please reach out via the form on the Services page to inquire about that.

Meet Cooper - the cutest assistant ever!

You know what they say, right?  Behind every great woman is… adorable puppy!  But seriously, I could NOT get through my days without this little guy.  Cooper is a Cairn Terrier with energy for days and kisses to spare.  When he’s not in the front window keeping tabs on the neighborhood, he’s usually curled up on the couch in my office.

Get to know a little bit more about me!


I'm born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and I still live here and love it!  Although...I'm nearly always cold, so I adore the 2 months of "real" summer we get here in Western Washington.


I'm SUPER organized and I love finding/trying new hacks for our house.  My husband is very understanding!


I took dancing and singing lessons from a young age, and I've done a lot of community theatre...


...that's actually where I met my husband!
