Productivity + Creativity

I come up with ideas, and I make them happen. I’m driven to do more—and to do it my own way.

  • Laura Kranz Art


    I create surreal art.

  • Laura Kranz music

You can explore my projects, giveaways, how-to articles, and ideas on the blog.

Wind Up (a poem and organic form drawing)

wind up the memory of action freezes into a motionless instant let go the memory becomes movement until everything churns to stillness we can’t forget because our past lives in our bones our tendons curled tightly around everything we ever did let go and everything that happened once happens again.
