Visual Art – Atlanta, GA

Hi, I’m Laura Sharp and I’m the creator behind IndigoKnots. I was born and raised in Georgia and currently reside in Marietta. I LIVE AND BREATH ART. For as long as I can remember I have always done some form of art - with painting and clay as my go-to favorites - and I my full-time job and BFA are in Graphic Design. Outside of work, I spend a lot of my time working in my studio creating things with my hands – mostly to give my eyes a rest from all the screens. BECOMING A MACRAME ARTIST. After having my son, I need an art form that was a little more forgiving and flexible to drop a moment’s notice to chase a little monster. With some research and experimenting, I fell in love with knotting. But to be honest, as the daughter of a flowerchild artist and a closet hippie, I think it was only a matter of time that I would find myself here in the world of macramé. I made my first piece of macramé as a Christmas present for one of my best friends back in December 2017. I found turning a simple piece of string into a beautiful wall hanging, with my very own hands, to be pretty amazing. I love how it brings interest, warmth, texture, and earthiness into your home. And in most cases can be that unexpected and perfect touch to almost any decor style, not just boho. Over the next year my love for the art from grew to become something I couldn’t stop doing. With my short time in the artform, I’ve created a signature knot, my rose knot, and started to become known for the intricate details of my pieces. My all-time favorite projects are custom orders, which demand a lot of thinking, creativity, challenges, and all the process that goes along with it. I enjoy getting to know my customers and finding the perfect design that will make them smile. WHAT MY FUTURE HOLDS. While IndigoKnots started off as a solo adventure into the world of macramé, I eventually want to open it up to collaborate with other artists and to expand into other fiber art forms, like weaving, and possible other mediums all together. ...more
