About Laura

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work is shaped by her cultural identity and she feels a strong connection towards using symbolic materials including historical documents and fabrics passed down from generations before.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 based.

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.
