Laura McDonnold's Profile

About

Panlora is a nickname given to me many years ago when I worked as an ad designer for a small rural newspaper. The saleswoman commented one day that she loved bringing me ads because I had a Pandora's box of ideas for the ads. Since my first name is Laura, it did not take long for the nickname of Panlora to stick.

I have always been artistic and painted my first identifiable picture at the age of 1 year old. It was a frog (a "fog" in baby talk...LOL) and I believe my mother still has it somewhere. I have always had a love of miniatures and when my brother and I were young we used to build houses and forts for our smurf and snorks figures in the back yard using only sticks, rocks, and things we found.

Recently this has carried over into my adult life as I have started to build what I call "recycled fairy houses". I was entranced by everything…

Recently this has carried over into my adult life as I have started to build what I call "recycled fairy houses". I was entranced by everything fantasy, mythical, and whimsical when I was young and never lost the love for it, so most of my art or crafts have that feel.

My name is Laura McDonnold. I am currently living in Bellevue, Nebraska with my fiance, my daughter, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a small house filled to the brim of projects and supplies. I am just another unemployed crafty single mom trying to make a buck. :) All my stuff is OOAK and partially recycled. In fact, they are impossible to recreate because except for the figures which are hand sculpted, all materials are garnered from thrift shops, garage sales, and hand me downs. Except for the hand sculpted figures themselves, my creations are often made from things I find in nature, thrift & antique shops, rummage sales, & even trash! This is my own way of recycling & creating whimsical art and crafts. I hope it brings joy & delight.

I create unique photos, fairies and fairy house miniatures, and my newest hobby, critters we call goblins. I also take commissions for original or special request characters.
