Laura Hudson grew up on Whidbey Island, located in the Puget Sound of Washington. After graduating high school she moved north 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 (MICA) in Baltimore, where she received an MFA from the Mt. Royal School of Art. Following graduate school, Laura became a part of Gallery Four, an artist collective in Baltimore, where she lived and co-ran the gallery alongside the other resident artists. 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. Together they have embraced the farm life on Whidbey Island, just as she had envisioned. They are raising two boys and are enjoying rural living in Clinton — close to loving family and friends. Laura’s studio is a short walk down the road, on her parent’s property, where her mother Georgia Gerber, runs a bronze foundry.
