H E L L O !   I ‘ M   L A U R A

I am an enthusiastic self-taught artist with unconventional experience in design and the craft industry. For over 7 years I have been working in museums and arts centres to create and deliver craft-based workshops for school, adults and families alongside designing additional resources. As an instructor, I am confident and passionate with infectious enthusiasm. I love to craft and make beautiful things, specialising in paper and card craft. My paintings have been part of group and solo exhibitions. I also enjoy ceramics, sewing and pyrography.

Having spent nearly two years in Peru that included a 3 month artist residency in the high Amazon jungle, I am influenced by their natural pigments, ancient artisan skills and the vivid artwork.

I am obsessed with naturally occuring colour combinations and how to render them in paint or paper.
