Biography

Laurie Sewell-Muller lives in Omaha, NE with her husband, Jay, and son Arlo. She received her Bachelors of Fine Art in painting from the University of Nebraska in Omaha in 2010.  She then changed paths to pursue a nursing career from UNMC and graduated with a BSN-RN degree in 2016.  She worked as a community mental health RN at a non-profit outpatient ACT team for three years.  She then had her son Arlo, and decided to focus on her family and furthering her career as a nurse and her passion for art. She is currently working on her doctorate degree at UNMC in mental health nursing to become a nurse practitioner. She envisions that one day she will open an outpatient clinic that focuses on creative mental health recovery through art-making and the experience of art to serve those that suffer from serious mental illness.   


Laurie's most recent creative endeavor is handmade jewelry.  She has always loved rocks, gemstones, nature, and creating beautiful color combinations.  She has found that making jewelry is a new way to express her love for these things and finds that her passion for painting inspires her designs for jewelry.
