Irreverent Artistry

Laura is an abstract mixed media artist. Often dark and expressive, her work seeks to convey emotion and the complexity of the human spirit through her work. Make sure you check out the videos of her process on her blog.

Laura has created a mural in The Making Rooms’ ground floor – a map of the planets as they were on our date of becoming a Community Interest Company. Thanks Laura!
