Crown of Beauty
"Crown" comes from a verse in the Book of Isaiah that describes a "crown of beauty." The name for my business was found in making art for my clients to treasure. Twelve years after I started my business, I would give my only daughter the middle name "Laurel," also referencing a crown of beauty or wreath of flowers. It's this idea, of having something beautiful that is treasured and loved, that gives my work its meaning.
