Laura studies landscapes, weather and seasonal change with a strong emphasis on colour. Currently she is painting with oils, but Laura produces work with oil pastels, acrylics and inks. Her love of the landscape and the ever changing weather conditions are her starting point, developing her work through sketches that explore composition and colour. From here, she works to create vivid and stimulating final pieces.

Laura is a practising artist living in Melbourne, Derbyshire. After growing up just outside Uttoxeter, where the local landscape of Staffordshire cemented her love of the landscape, she moved to study fine art at Edinburgh, graduating in 1998.
