Artistic Journey – It is fascinating to discover the evolution of an artist’s artistic journey. This “beginning” often changes because of life experiences, shifts in thought, subject matter, and choice of materials that are used to create their art form.
Laura Zierl began her journey in 2003, built on the foundation of the creative women in her life. Her mother, a prolific seamstress, and grandmothers that were excellent cooks, knitters, and crocheters, planted the creative seed of vision into her thought patterns. Laura always liked sparkly things, and the unusual. Desiring to create a cord for a pair of sunglasses, she began researching beads and discovered an array of fascinating shapes, colors, and kinds of beads, and soon, LiLi Designs, the name of her business, was born. Her designs- jewelry and crocheted accessories, WildArt Gallery.
Laura says, “We need to focus on creating when we are the LEAST inclined to create, those times of stress or busy-ness, that impede our ability to visualize, because creating ignites energy and helps us cope with the stresses in our modern-day lives.
