My name is Laura Ball and I am originally from Bayside, Queens NY.  I moved to Florida in 1995 and have been here ever since.  People know me from the Sanibel Post Office where I've been working as a Window Clerk for over 20 years.  Aside from my full-time job, I paint local wildlife on canvas as well as coconut postcards, both of which are available for purchase, upon request or at the locations below.

  • Prints, original paintings and notecards are available at George and Wendy's
  • Coconuts are sold in the following Sanibel Island shops:

Qwik Pack & Ship

SanCap Pak-n-Ship

Suncatchers Dream

Tuttle's Seahorse Shell Shop


  • ALL are for purchase at my fun & colorful Etsy shop! (ArtbyLauraJBall)

Last but not least, I am a traveling paint party!!!!  I bring out the artist in even the most non-artistic people by hosting wine and paint parties, teaching guests to paint while sipping!  I will come anywhere that is convenient for you, whether it be your home, resort, office, hair salon, restaurant, church, clubhouse, etc.

You may think you can't even draw a stick figure but I promise you that you can!   I will guide you and make it easy and you will have so much fun!   

If the idea of a wine and paint party excites you, below is what you need to know to get started!

  • All supplies included except food and drink
  • Minimum of 5 people and maximum of 20, in order to make it a party
  • Cost: $35.00 per person

Contact me today, I can't wait to paint with you!





Ever since I was a little girl I was always painting and drawing.  It was my Junior High School teacher who recognized my talent and encouraged me to apply to High School of Art and Design.  To my amazement, I was accepted!
