In 2015 after 10 years working in environmental archaeology Laura decided to undertake a workshop in printmaking, the technique of collagraphy. She fell in love with instantly and her passion was born.
In April 2016 she awarded a bursary from Purbeck arts week, in enabling her to take her career forward. Something for which she is very grateful for, thereafter she continued to produce original prints inspired by her interest in archaeology.
With an interest already in textiles designers such as William Morris, she set about trying to apply the technique of collagraphy to fabric. In 2017 after lots of experiments with inks, washing, drying times and lampshade making, she successful made her first shade. It was important that the fabrics be light -fast and wash-safe. She then went on to design a unique and column floor lamp. Thereabouts after came an interest in sourcing local wood creating unique bases to go with her shades.
She has since developed a love of painting, her work is contemporary inspired by the landscape and its forms, working mainly in quick drying oils but also acrylics and mixed media.
