Having graduated in BA Hons Textiles at Manchester Metropolitan University, Laura pursued a career in textile design, freelance designing in the UK before accepting a work placement with a textile design company in Auckland, New Zealand.
Returning to the UK, Laura established herself here at MCDC in Studio 12 in 2005, in order to paint directly for the public. Nowadays you can find her in Studio One, working alongside jewellers Amy Wilkinson & Charlotte Verity.
Reviving a painting technique discovered in her later university days, Laura uses a rich pairing of oils & metallic powders to ‘carve’ images, often likened to metal sheeting or even silk fabrics. Sophisticated, shimmering qualities of these framed & canvas paintings, lend themselves well to both modern & traditional interiors; be it ornamental damask repeats or freehand sketchy nature-inspired imagery; these light-changing pieces add depth to any room.
Laura welcomes commissions for your home & business interiors, and invites you to visit Studio One to view her current collection.
