Saturday’s works in progress...lots of new goodies to come for next weekend’s Full Moon Market..details in my last post. Happy Saturday, friends! ✌🏼 . . . . #woodwork #maker #woodworker #woodshop #shopvibes #ontheworkbench #worksinprogress #womenwhobuild #seattlemakersmarket #lauraburkhartcreative
Last year I showed my work every single month for 15 months straight. It was exhilarating and exhausting, and while I’m beyond grateful for the opportunities to put my work out there, I’ve decided to take a very conscious and intentional break. I’m planning one very special show for later this year and I’m allowing myself the space + time to hole in my studio and just see what happens. I’m excited to take it slow for a change, to really let things flow, and to go deep into the creative process. __ With that, I’ve also decided to take a break from teaching Painting Workshops for a bit. While they bring me SO much joy, and it’s been AMAZING to see so many of you tap into your creativity through them, I’m feeling called to give my own work some more focused attention. There are just too many things that have been brewing inside that I need to get out onto canvas. That said, I’ll be going out (for now) with a bang with two exciting Painted Peaks Workshops in the next few weeks. I’ll be @tidesandpinesshop this Thursday, and @studiolifeseattle on February 13th, and we still have a few spots left in each class. So if you’ve been wanting to come paint mountains with me, snag your spot ASAP! 💙💙💙 #lauraburkhartcreative . . . #seattlelove #seattleartist #seattleartclass #painter #modernart #contemporaryart #creativelife
Have you made a colorful mess lately? To me it’s one of the most therapeutic activities there is. Join us next week for Painted Peaks @tidesandpinesshop // You come, you paint, you leave with a work of art and a belly full of cider, we clean up the mess 💙 link in bio-you know the drill...see there! #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #artworkshop #workshop #painterslife #paintingclass #seattleartclass #seattleworkshops #seattleartist #mountainpainting
Hi there! 👋🏼I’m Laura Burkhart, an artist, maker and designer born + raised in the Pacific Northwest. I figured it was about time I reintroduced myself on here. I regularly share a lot of my heart + soul, but probably have never actually done a proper introduction...so here goes! ___ I’ve wanted to be an Artist for as long as I can remember and have been pursuing this passion my whole life. I have degrees in both Fine Arts and Interior Design, and have worked a variety of creative jobs in the past decade. After working in Interior and Event Design and running my own Custom Art business, I did Display for @freepeople for many years. It was one of the most incredible jobs I’ve ever had, as I was surrounded by and collaborated with so many talented inspiring women, and got to create art installations all over the country. We worked in every artistic medium you can imagine and I learned new skills constantly. I then did Creative Merchandising + Display for @filson1897 , another amazing opportunity to create for a brand with an aesthetic I loved in a variety of mediums. All the while I’ve always painted, built, and designed on the side, doing installations in the evenings, working on shows and pop-ups on the weekends, and managing clients in any spare time I had. This last May, I finally decided to take the leap to take on my own business full time and I haven’t looked back since. You can now find me working in my little woodshop, painting in my studio, or designing around the city. In between I’m usually running, biking, hiking or paddle-boarding, always moving, always outdoors, and spending time with my sweet husband, Jake (of @seattlepilatesco ) and our 100lb Ridgeback, Phinney. 🖤 ___ I’ve experienced devastating loss and incredible joy in my 33 years and strongly believe that health + happiness are paramount, community is everything and life is way too damn short to not be doing what you love and living your truth. I wear my heart on my sleeve and cannot hide my emotions for better or worse. This is an honest record of my work, my life, my struggles and my successes. Thank you SO much for following along on my journey, it truly means the world to me.
Some artists don’t like doing commissions, but I kind of live for them. To be given to opportunity to create with intention, to take something of great meaning to someone and put it on canvas through my own lens, to bring their vision to life through my own hand writing, and to fuse original art into their home as a collaboration, it’s pretty special. I consider it an honor and take on the challenge with enthusiasm. This piece was an interpretation of an incredible photo taken by the client on a recent Mt. Rainier climb, and it’s one of my favorites to date. Painting it quickly became more about capturing the energy of Glacier Peak in all it’s magnificence, a tremendous task. More than a few times I wanted to drop the paint brush and drive south just to be in it’s mighty presence. I had Mt. Rainier on the brain so much that I started planning our next trip there in my dreams. Have you been there recently? I would love to see your pics as I start creating new work 💙 ___ On another note, if you’d like to come paint mountains with me, I have two PAINTED PEAKS WORKSHOPS coming up this month and next, and would love to have you! I’ll be @tidesandpinesshop in Ballard this month and @studiolifeseattle in the U District next month. Check my calendar for dates and details. If you’ve been wanting to come, make sure to snag one of these spots as I’ll be taking a little break from teaching workshops for a while as I focus on new work and special projects.

Friends!! I am SO excited to officially announce...I’m teaming up with my girl @shophenri.co to host a monthly pop-up @stumptowncoffee in Capitol Hill! ___ Introducing, FULL MOON MARKET; A monthly gathering of Pacific Northwest Makers. Meeting and connecting with so many of you in person has been so incredible, and I wanted to create space to do that on a regular basis this year. We’ll have a small rotating group of local vendors coming together each month on or around the full moon. The first one is January 26th + 27th so mark your calendars! I want this to be a space for you to come chat + connect with me over coffee, shop new work, discuss special projects, and support a community of local small businesses. I’ll still be stocking my shop with pieces as I have them, but this will be a chance to see and feel the work in person. Anyway, if you’re nearby, I would LOVE to meet you. We’ll be announcing our first crew of makers soon and are booking for coming months as well, so if you or anyone you know would like to join, just holler at me! __ Hope you’re weekend is off to a beautiful start. I’m planning to take full advantage of the winter sunshine we’re getting here in Seattle and the fresh coat of snow making the mountain ranges surrounding the city seem to glow with light. 💙 Xoxo #lauraburkhartcreative . . . 📷: @devinrlarson #seattlemaker #seattlepopup #maker #woodwork #woodworker #woodworking #woodart #craftswoman #womenwithtools #creativeentrepreneur
@lauraburkhart is my hero. Go follow her & watch her video “The Art of Happiness” which you can find on her IGTV on her profile. 🏔🌲⚓️🌊 “You know, it hasn’t always been the most clear path and not always getting to just create and make art as a living. It’s always just been something that I’ve really fought for. And you know, whenever people ask me “I’d love to have job like that someday how did you get there? What should I do? What should my major be? What job should I be trying to get?” My answer is always the same— it’s just finding a way- finding a way to do the art, finding a way to do what you love at all costs.” 💪
Guess what?! One of my handmade woodwork headboards is now on display @featheredfriends1972 in South Lake Union! So if you’re in the market for a piece and want to see it in person, you can now go check it out while shopping the coziest and best down in town (which I immediately laid down on)! Woohoo 🙌🏼 I’ll have details on my site soon about this piece which is available for a Queen size bed, but you can also order a custom size and color palette through my site anytime. 🖤#lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #woodwork #woodworker #customheadboard #headboard #bedroomdecor #bedroominspo #decor #womenwithpowertools #handmade #seattlemaker
Almost exactly a year ago, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be interviewed and filmed by the incredible @kevinkinghorn and @kjpinc . At the time I was working more than full time as a creative for @filson1897 and I was side hustling as a creative in every free moment I had. The need to create and all the light that comes with it has always been my driving force. My workshop and studio were messy, I stumbled on my words quite a bit, and true to form the Seattle winter weather did not cooperate, but I love the way the film captured this exact moment in time. Full of clumsy beauty, perfect imperfections, and the constant pursuit of mastering the art of happiness. . . 🎥: @kevinkinghorn + @kjpinc Music by @lordhuron 🖤 . . . #lauraburkhartcreative #artistinterview #artistinstudio #maker #creativelife #studiovisit #meetthemaker #21daysinmyartworld

I am so excited to finally share this custom piece I made this summer for @dwinteriordesign in its new Idaho Home! @dwinteriordesign has been sharing photos from this dreamy Mountain Modern project all week, and I can’t stop drooling over them...Hey Dion, when can I move in?! 🤞🏼#lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #interiordesign #interiordesigner #woodwork #woodart #woodworker #walldecor #homedecor #wallhanging #womenwhomake #designer #woodwall
Been spending the past week cozy in my art studio painting mountain landscapes with metallic skies. It’s been so nice getting my hands back into paint again, getting lost in the colors of the pnw, and giving my shoulder a much needed break from the mitre saw and the belt sander. — As I finish up commissions and send things off to their new homes, I’m starting to meditate on where this work will go next. I’m excited to dive back into exploration and a more expanded creative process this year. I’ve got concepts in my head I can’t wait to put down on canvas, but I’ve also been dying to give myself the space + time to create newness, to flow in whatever direction pulls me, and to take more risks. Not sure where it will take me but I can’t wait to see, and so appreciate you all being along for the ride. — I also have✌🏼painting workshops coming up so make sure to check my events page in my site (link in bio) for the deets. And stay tuned, because I’ve got some exciting collaborations in the works for 2019, and I can’t wait to share!! #lauraburkhartcreative . . . #painterslife #landscapeartist #seattleartist #seattleartpost #pnwartist #northwestcreatives #paintingclass #seattleartclass
Been scheming up ways to play around with scale, color + composition this year. This piece was made up of 9 different sculptural wall hangings designed to come together to create this large wood wall. It was so much fun to make and install this one, and I can’t wait to dig back into this approach in new ways. Thinking it would be cool to wrap a corner this way? #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #woodwork #handmade #femalemakers #womenwithtools #customart #woodwall #woodworker
Ok...so I know with the New Year starting I should be feeling super motivated and inspired and ready to take on the world, but to be honest I’m still recovering. Much like I’m sure many of you, I went nonstop until Christmas Eve and then I just crashed. No surprise, but it turns out I am not superwoman and I don’t have an endless supply of energy and despite my best efforts to take care of myself, I burnt out by the time the year ended. And now as everyone is jumping in with gusto to their 2019 endeavors I’m lagging. Anyone with me? I am so excited for everything that lies ahead, but I’m taking a bit longer to regain my strength, reset my intentions and get my mojo back. So if you can relate, I’m looking at you, and at myself, and saying let’s be patient with ourselves, have a little grace with the process, and give ourselves the full recovery we need to start kicking ass and taking names again 👊🏼 xoxo #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #creativeentrepreneur #womenwithtools #woodworker #builtforthis #woodwork #workshopvibes #maker

After a season full of ornaments and tree toppers I’ve been loving coming back to playing around with color, shape and scale in my woodwork recently. This piece is a current favorite, in washed out shades of gray inspired by this dreamy Blue Pine. ↟↟↟ #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . 📷: @devinrlarson #woodwork #woodworker #maker #makersmovement #womenwhomake #womenwithtools #woodshop #woodart #woodissexy #handmade #seattleartist
Been spending the last few days of 2018 hibernating, in a painting meditation, grounding, reflecting on the year, and coming back to my why. No matter the pain, no matter the loss, no matter the frustrations that life may bring, my reason will always be joy. The pursuit of joy, the celebration of joy, and the spreading of joy. Finding the joy in each day, igniting joy in each other, seeing the joy in the things that connect us all, it is my life’s guiding light. This, after all, is why I create, why I live my life the way I do, with my heart on my sleeve and my emotions out there in paint, in wood, and in ink. A few times this year I lost sight of that, I got bogged down in the details of running a business, of living up to my own expectations, of managing inevitable failures. But this week, as I’ve lost myself in Glacier Peak and all its glory, I’ve made a resolution. I’m resolving to not loose sight of my why, to let the self-doubt only pass through me like a wave, and to come quickly back to why I started creating in the first place. May 2019 be a year of JOY for us all. ___ I’m so excited to be offering two Painted Peaks Workshops in the coming months to share this passion for painting with you. I’ll be @tidesandpinesshop Jan. 24th, and @studiolifeseattle on Feb. 13th >>> Find details on my events page + over on their sites. #lauraburkhartcreative
Is anyone else not ready at all to say goodbye to the Xmas decor? Even though my tree is dry and many lights have gone out, I’m planning to keep things festive at least until the new year what about you guys?! ↟↟↟// Loving this use of my wooden ornaments as Holiday wall decor from @rockandstoneweddings 🖤 #lauraburkhartcreative . . #holidaydecor #woodwork #wallhanging #seattleartist #feelingfestive
The custom and commissioned wall art piece by @lauraburkhart is perfect with the wall color and bed linens! I designed the custom boho floor pillows to pull in some of the grey/blue in her bathroom floor tile which I will post next. This is only the first phase of installation of the little girls mountain modern bedroom!

One of these days I’ll find the time to make a piece for my own home. This little spot at my entry way is always in need and it’s where I keep finished pieces before they find a new home. Sometimes it’s a painting, sometimes it’s woodwork, and sometimes it’s completely bare, depending on my mood. I got particularly attached this one before shipping it off to New Jersey last week, but I’m also incredibly excited to see this Northwest inspired work find a home on the East Coast. 🖤 #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #woodwork #woodissexy #handmade #maker #makersmovement #womenwithtools #woodworker
P.S....I’ll also have gold, silver and copper leaf in tow, and will be teaching you how to add that magical metallic touch ✨💫⚡️Just added 2 Painted Peaks Workshop dates so you can gift someone with this special evening of creativity. Xoxo . . . #lauraburkhartcreative #seattleartist
Hey Seattle! Looking for a last minute gift idea?! Well I’ve got ✌🏼dates on the calendar for mountain painting with me in the New Year. I love doing these workshops SO much and never cease to be blown away by my students. It’s so incredible seeing everyone’s unique style come through in their paintings, even if they’ve never painted before in their life. Can’t wait to keep the party going in 2019!! // Details on my site-link in bio >>> 1.24.19 @tidesandpinesshop + 2.13.19 @studiolifeseattle 💙 . . . . #lauraburkhartcreative #seattleartist #seattleartclass #artworkshop #artclass #paintingworkshop #creativelife #creativehappylife
Our HC x @lauraburkhart tote bag is perfect for hauling your gifts around this season! Laura designed this bag with inspiration from our home, the PNW. The two mountains in the middle represent The Brothers - two prominent mountains in the Olympics that you can see on a clear winter day driving into Ballard. ⠀
Immediately after this photo was taken, my hat flew off and landed in Lake Washington and started floating quickly away. I was pretty sure it was lost forever, but after snapping the pic @devinrlarson grabbed a giant stick and ran across 4 backyards and down someone’s private dock to fish it out of the lake. So not only did she get this rad shot, but she also saved my favorite hat-she’s a badass and a damn good friend and I’m pretty lucky to have her around 🙌🏼 // Just listed this beauty on my site and it’s discounted because it got a tiny chip in the frame while hauling it back + forth last week. As always, DM me to snatch it up locally ✌🏼#lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #woodworking #woodwork #maker #makersgonnamake #seattleartist #wallhanging #woodissexy #womenwithtools

The sweetest woman purchased this piece from me a few weeks ago, and when she sent me this photo I literally squealed with joy. This little nook is styled to perfection and it’s like this piece was meant for it. This color palette has been a fun one to play around in lately, and a brighter, warmer take on these gray Seattle days. I have a couple pieces currently available in this color palette-(check my stories for deets) and am taking commissions now for Spring 2019.

Spending some time reflecting back on 2018 this week which was one of the CRAZIEST years of my life. There were some incredible successes and some heart breaking losses but it started off with this wild moment back in January☝🏼I got a DREAM commission from design royalty @genevievegorder herself to create a custom front door for the Houseboat she was making over for her new @netflix series #StayHere !!! It was a whirlwind of a week creating this project and shooting with them, then coming back that Friday to see the big reveal. This is the face of a grateful woman who just took a giant leap of faith, put her heart + soul into something, and was pretty damn excited about how it turned out. Now I’ll be ending the year right where I started it, finally getting to make my own stay on the @seattlelakesidelovenest So excited to see the fireworks over Lake Union and cheers to another wild and crazy year ahead. ✌🏼#lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #stayhere #netflix #airbnb #vacationrental #seattlelakesidelovenest #vrbo #designmakeover #housemakeover #houseboat #seattlemaker #seattleartist #seattlehouseboat #designshow #hgtv

I would love to be able to post a photo of me doing something epic in the mountains right now, but the truth is I haven’t ventured much outside of my home studio + workshop lately. So here I am IRL, bundled up, working with my hands and creating artwork to make a living. And I gotta say, it’s a pretty epic adventure. 🛠#lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #dovetailworkwear #getdirtywithdovetail #builtforthis #carhartt #workwear #maker #womenwithtools #diy #craftsman #craftswoman #creativelife #creativeentrepeneur #seattlemaker

This week was a frustrating one in the shop- it was full of mishaps, very little went as planned, and it was cold as ice. But every moment of that was made completely worth it by the moments I had yesterday when meeting some of you, connecting over this work, and getting to see these pieces find a new home. And now I can’t wait to get right back to creating more🖤 #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #woodworker #woodwork #woodshop #womenwithtools #woodlove #woodissexy #maker #seattleartist #seattlemaker #handmade #homedecor #decor #woodenstar #woodensnowflakes

‘Painting is just another way of keeping a diary’- Pablo Picasso // This sentiment rings so true for me. Much like my diaries were always explorations of my emotions rather than recaps of my day, I paint mountains not to perfectly render a scene, but to express what these epic views represent to me. I find I can say so much more with paint, brush and pure gold. #lauraburkhartcreative . . . . #artislove #painter #landscapepainter #artist #seattlepainter #mountainsandtrees #artistlife #mountainpainting #artstudio #worksinprogress #makeartnotwar
Sometimes being an artist is all sunshine + rainbows (or in my case, Mountains + stars). And sometimes it’s being knocked on your ass with the wind kicked out if you, fighting like hell to get back up and keep going, and then having to explain why the hell you would get back up and keep going when it’s clearly the path of the MOST resistance. Most of the time it’s both of these scenarios happening all at the same time. It’s nursing your wounds while you’re celebrating your successes, it’s putting your heart and soul out on display in hopes of adding a bit of light + joy to the world while fighting against your own darkness. It’s a damn roller coaster to be honest, but I have no intention of getting off this wild ride any time soon, and I am so thankful you’re all willing to come along with me. 💛 . . . . #lauraburkhartcreative #woodworker #woodwork #woodwall #woodissexy #creativeentrepreneur #actlikeanentrepreneur #maker #womenwhobuild #girlboss #womenwithtools #handmade

Shipping this piece off this week was a little bitter sweet as it was one of my all time favorites...but getting to see it in what is so clearly the home it was meant for, is pretty incredible.

Hey friends! We have just a couple spots left in this week’s Painted Peaks Workshop @tidesandpinesshop !! << Join us Wednesday, December 5th 6-8:30pm in Ballard >> — These are some of my students’ stunning paintings from the last couple workshops.
