Laura Mauk

Writer, Los Angeles

What made you want to become a writer? Curiosity. I love finding out why individuals think the way they do. I also enjoy stringing words together in what I hope is a painterly way that gives people understanding or lets them see something differently. If I could interview anyone, it would be… Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frank Lloyd Wright or Donald Judd. They were all revolutionaries with such unique visions and strong characters. Each of them led an interesting life, making iconic art and architecture in authentic and thoughtful ways. Is there anything intriguing you currently in the world of design? I love the way design continues to connect to nature with lots of glass, sunlight and simple, organic materials. Form and texture have evolved and, as a result, I feel that buildings and furniture today are much more dynamic.
