Laura Hudson grew up on Whidbey Island. After high school she moved to Bellingham and earned a BFA from Western Washington University. Shortly after, Laura crossed the country to embrace city life and attend Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, where she received an MFA from the Mt. Royal School of Arts program. Following graduate school, Laura became a part of Gallery Four, an artist collective in Baltimore. Longing for a deeper connection to the natural world, she crossed the country once again to move home to the Pacific Northwest, where she met her husband and together they embraced the farm life on Whidbey Island. They are currently busy raising their two boys and enjoying rural life in Clinton — close to loving family and friends. Laura’s studio is just a short walk down the road, where her mother, Georgia Gerber has her sculpture studio.
