Hi, I'm Laura, a representational artist
with a contemporary style.
Originally trained as a graphic designer I took a leap of faith and
returning to my childhood passion for drawing and painting.
Finding the right course to hone my skills were the key to motivating me
on this artistic journey.
My inspiration is truly immersed in the classical style of oil painting. It centres around the aesthetic values of colour and unity of space, where the use of light and interpreted brush strokes to create my distinctive, contemporary style. I choose oils as my favoured medium.
My portrait and figurative works are heavily influenced by Sargent’s work and his remarkable technical ability to draw with his brush, while the landscapes are inspired by Turner’s wonderful interplay between the
use of light and colour.
I continue to attend various courses* strengthening my focus for observation, drawing and application technics, which combined help me to enhance my visual expressions, experimenting and diversifying, enjoying their evolvement across various platforms
and styles. - continuing to strive for perfection.
'Keeping my work exciting, continuing to drive the passion.'
