"Laura was so generous in providing thoughtful in-depth answers with patience. She offered helpful criticism along with suggested tweaks to my art, encouragement for the steps ahead, and a few insider "secrets." All in all, a great experience. Looking ahead, I now have more confidence for pitching my work. Thank you, Laura!"

Looking for feedback on your work?
I’ve reviewed hundreds of patterns, color palettes, and collections over the last 28 years and have a keen eye for what works well, what is on trend, and what is ready for purchase. I would love the opportunity to help you clarify your direction.
As a reviewer, I want to encourage you in your process while also giving detailed feedback that will make it stronger. My goal is to give you a realistic outside look at your work, offer direction that is helpful, and suggest edits if/where needed.
I would describe my feedback as straightforward and honest, with kindness at the core. I value the fact that you trust me to review your work and want to make sure you gain value from the review you receive. As a fellow creative, I understand how hard feedback can be to receive. It’s also the single greatest thing to improve your work if you come to it with an open mind.
Here’s how it works:
To submit items for review, please purchase one of the packages below. If you purchase a one-on-one live Q&A session, you will be contacted to set up a time. Examples of Q&A sessions are: questions about how markets work, direction on next steps and formulating a plan, overcoming creative blocks, etc.
For portfolio reviews, once you have completed your purchase, you’ll be sent a link to upload your work for feedback. Each link is individual and private to you, so please allow up to 24 hours for this to be created.
Next, upload your work based on the package purchased.
You will be contacted via email to confirm receipt of payment and files.
Please allow up to 10 business days for your work to be reviewed.
You will receive detailed feedback in recorded video format so that you are able to visually understand the feedback and be able to watch as many times as you like, sent to the email you provide during checkout. There is no in-person or “live” aspect to the review.
30 min live Q&A session: $75
Single Collection of up to 12 patterns: $100
Multiple Collections (up to 3 Collections with up to 12 patterns in each collection, for a max of 36 patterns): $200
