Feathers and Tracks began as a personal blog for me to catalogue and share my creative writing. I was not seeking an audience so much as inspiration to keep writing, recording, remembering and sharing my observations, stories and thoughts. First and foremost a writer, my genre tends to be personal essay/ memoir style non-fiction. I draw from memory, interactions, travel, adventure and nature.
The idea for this space began when I launched my stationary line in the summer of 2018. I have always enjoyed painting and letter writing, often combing the two to create one-of-a-kind envelopes and cards for family and friends.
Seeking a place where I could share my work, both visual and written, as well as begin to build my own personal brand, led me here. Stay tuned for updates and new developments.
Hi, I’m Laura! Born and raised on the Jersey shore without a television and a taste for the outdoors, I have been a creative dreamer and maker for as long as I can remember. When my head wasn’t buried in a book, my hands were covered in paint or I was frustratingly trying to untangle a ball of yarn (usually Mom took over here). After receiving my BA from St. Lawrence University in English with an unofficial (I never took art history, get over it) minor in Fine Art, I began writing my first published story in the car at a gas station somewhere in the mid-west as I drove to Montana with my Dad. After continuing to self-publish stories, I got my first serious idea for a children’s book. It was only a matter of time before I needed a place to keep all of my creative endeavors organized…oh, and to help promote myself as an artist, which as it turns out, is as hard as everyone warns you it will be. No time like the present!
