Laura Farahzad Mayer
Laura Farahzad Mayer was born and raised in Wisconsin where a love of letters drew her to pursue graphic design. She earned her BFA at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point before working as a graphic artist for Whole Foods Market. Her design work leans heavily into the hand drawn often as an illustrator and hand letterer.
She is currently pursuing her MFA at the University of Iowa where her work focuses on generational storytelling. Her work navigates ideas of memory, grief, culture and unreliable narration through a variety of mediums. She is especially fond of bookmaking, readymade objects, printmaking and is still drawing letters too.
