Laura Hudson grew up on beautiful 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 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, where she lived and co-ran the gallery alongside 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 and together they embraced the farm life on Whidbey Island, just as she had envisioned. They recently welcomed a baby boy and are enjoying rural living in Clinton — close to loving family and friends. Laura’s studio is just a short walk down the road, on her parent’s property, where her mother Georgia Gerber, runs a bronze foundry.
