Laura Post earned an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in Printmaking and a B.A.
from Swarthmore College in Studio Art and Asian Studies focusing on Chinese language, history
and art history. Post used her undergraduate language training to study printmaking
at a Chinese art academy, as well as apprentice at Rongbao zhai traditional print
atelier in Beijing during her MFA program. She is currently Affiliate Assistant Professor

with the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, the Fort Worth Water Department, the Fort Worth Public
Library, and the Arlington Public Library through her LRP Studio, LLC founded in 2020.
