Artist's Statement

Art and design have been a continuing passion throughout Laura's life.  She has increasingly found oil painting perfect for creative expression, inspired by found objects, natural forms and colour. 

Her paintings focus on the abstract patterns in the everyday  - seaside rocks and sand, onions, lemons, a full moon or small details from urban buildings.

In 2011 she spent three months making a series of Diary Paintings - a small painting every day, inspired by travelling around London.  The images she chose came from a diverse range - reflections in a skyscraper, driftwood, car headlights, security fencing.

Laura's Ghost Fruits series comes from rotting fruit and vegetables onto canvas and using only the rotten products to produce the work.  The result is then dried and fixed so it is held in suspension.  She explores the idea of beauty where most people would feel revulsion.

She has designed for the theatre (productions include Ayckbourn premieres, pantomime, touring shows and film), run her own product design business and currently works as a freelance interior designer alongside her art practice.

She started exhibiting annually through Artists at Home in West London in 2008.  She also shows regularly at Espacio Gallery, Shoreditch and sells giclee prints of her work through Pocket Gallery.

Paintings are in private collectons in France, Finland, Germany, USA, Ireland and England.
