Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, Laura Stewart recognized her love for drawing and painting at an early age. A high school art class assignment to write and illustrate a children’s book inspired her dream to make a “real” book.


Luckily, she had many wonderful art teachers and professors who helped shape her into the successful design professional she is today.


Eyelash Wishes is her first published book; she plans to publish more, as her sons provide her with daily inspiration.

When not spending her free time designing, she is a full-time Assistant Art Director by day and juggling a busy baseball schedule for both sons, by night.

In May 2020, Laura and her husband Josh became grandparents to their first grandson. “Grandma and Grandpa” have been replaced by “Lolli and Pop” which served as the inspiration for Laura’s publishing business name, LolliPop Stories.
