When the  pandemic began in 2020, many people searched for something to occupy their time.  The founder of LLdezigns, Laura Leone, was no different.  Inspired by some acrylic pouring videos viewed online, she decided to try the artform herself.  While Laura enjoyed creating canvas works, she was seeking a more unique "canvas."  That's when the idea came to try painting on a clear, glass vase and from there, her imagination and creativity blossomed.  After a few years of perfecting her craft, LLdezigns was born.  Laura looks forward to sharing her art with everyone and welcomes you to visit the Art Gallery page on this site to view her works and scroll below to learn more about her background.
