Laura Palermo is a wildlife conservastion artist based in Charleston, South Carolina. Laura began painting a Sea Turtle Collection after encountering two of them off the coast of Sullivan's Island. This chance encounter has stoked a passion within her to study and protect sea turtles, including volunteering at the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital. Ten percent (10%) of her profits from the collection goes to support this hospital.
In addition to sea turtles, Laura paints many species of wildlife with an eye toward conservation of our ecosystems.
Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Laura attended Mercyhurst University and obtained a bachelors degree in art. She also studied art in Florence Italy.
