If you believe the psychologists, then you know there aren’t many people whose life’s work is built around a passion for both art and science. Laura Seeley falls into that very rare category. If she hadn’t become a writer and illustrator of children’s fare, she says, she’d have opted for a career as a veterinarian.

Duty called her to the more aesthetic path—hence her award-winning books The Book of Shadowboxes and The Magical Moonballs, as well as Shadowbox Hunt and McSpot’s Hidden Spots, a Puppyhood Secret.  Upcoming books are Jerome's Journey and The Tabby Tiger Talent Agency. 

Her cat and dog art exquisitely dots her resume; her school programs are noted for their interactive nature and respect for the power of words; and her Kats for Kauses and Pups for a Purpose charities are designed to provide the best of care for animals in need. This Boston native and Dana Point resident keeps a daunting schedule, but it’s all for a good cause—the stewardship of the critter kingdom that so closely mirrors our own.  

Visit Laura Seeley Studio and Best Friends Art Gallery, located in Dana Point, CA,  at 24682 Del Prado, on the southbound side of route 1. Or visit her website at www.lauraseeley.com.
