Art has always been Laura's greatest
communication tool, helping her untangle feelings and weave narratives. It has
also equipped her with the creative language to work with others. Her work is shaped by her cultural
identity and she feels a strong connection towards using symbolic
materials including historical documents and fabrics passed down from
generations before. Laura strives to work with the most relevant symbolic
materials and often but not exclusively these materials are textiles
Laura has a Degree in Embroidery and a Masters
in Art As Environment. Combined these have nurtured a socially responsible art
practice placing people and narratives at the forefront.
Within her own practice Laura has exhibited her artwork taken part in art residencies and worked on private commissions. Alongside developing her own art
practice, Laura has over 16 years experience creating within
communities. Her projects nurture community cohesion, celebrate identity
and heritage, and promote well-being.
