b. 1958, Laura Hipke spent most of her childhood in a small town near Vancouver, Washington. She is self-taught except for a brief stay at California Institute of the Arts when she was sixteen years old. Her studio is located in Montrose, California, a speck on the map just north of Glendale which suits her small town sensibilities.
