Laura Palmer

Iowan. Illustrator. Mail Nerd. 


A lifelong Iowan who values a philanthropic spirit, the U.S. Postal Service and a thoughtfully handwritten note, Laura started XO-LP in 2009 producing illustrations made with highlighters, markers and wit. In 2014, she went from full-time fundraiser to full-time illustrator, a dream she's had since creating her first hand-made greeting card in 1988. 

In the past 2 years, Laura became a wife, saw 24 states on her #nomadlyweds adventures, and worked on over 300 custom illustration projects including: corporate holiday cards, illustrated retirement dreams, watercolor paintings of 20 personal landmarks, a Rogue jump box that Carrie Underwood owns, Stormtroopers with balloons, her own wedding invitations, a wall mural, custom address stamps and more. 

In 2017, Laura wants to take her husband to Europe, illustrate a book, visit another National Park and see her work in a national publication.

Laura loves confetti, egg rolls, love letters, dance parties, Racko, Spanish food, college basketball, postcard stamps, Adobe Capture, freckles, pinot noir, gold shoes, Papermate flair pens, her totally rad family and her tall, patient husband.
