Since childhood, Laura has always been passionate about drawing and painting, inheriting a passion for the arts from her father. Her first inspiration was Disney and later, she became mesmerised by Pre-Raphaelite painting and would regularly visit Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery with her parents.
After completing an Art Foundation course at Bournville Art College, she went on to study Fashion Promotion and Illustration at the University for Creative Arts, however, much of her craft has been refined by endlessly drawing and painting in her own time.
Laura uses a range of materials to create her works, but she has a particular love for Indian ink on Fabriano hot-press watercolour paper. She says this love is rooted in discovering illustrators such as Quentin Blake and Ralph Steadman.
Laura’s original paintings and limited edition prints can be found exhibited in Castle Fine Art galleries nationwide.
