She is inspired by nature and ‘seeing things in unusual places’, such as, seeing faces and creatures in natural formations. Water splatter, wood marks and stone textures and formations, to name a few. With a variety of layers, Laura’s artwork, has an essence of whimsy and fantasy with a creative storyline to touch on deeper topics.
