Laura Halsey Brown is an artist working in place-based education, and public art spaces - as senseofplace LAB. Founded in 2008.

She provides a supportive 'place' for students to create art, with on focus on SEL (Social and Emotional Learning). Her educational experiences are for all learners; including neurodiverse and LGBTQ students. Her classes are online with and in-person at Sou'wester in Seaview, WA. She is also a SEL consultant.

senseofplace LAB has created public art projects that make visible the value within a place. Projects use art and architectural strategies to produce layered visuals that heighten a relationship to place - and inspire the viewer to be more present in place. She is included in the Public Art Roster at the Washington State Commission for the Arts.
