Laura was born in New York and moved to New Jersey and West County Ireland before returning to USA, specifically Virginia. However, Laura feels that it was their time in England that really developed them into the person and artist they are today.
"I feel I matured during my time in England, which has helped define who I am as an adult. My childhood was very American, but I identify more with the style of art from England, where I grew up and came into my own."
Whilst at Reading, Laura began to define their own style of art. Laura's work focused on the narrative of the human body and bodily structure, how western ideas and the western canon have influenced what the body looks like. Deriving from methodology, pornography and medical textbooks, Laura explored what it means to have and be in a body.
"I feel my art elaborates my interests in human psychology and I have enjoyed making artwork that makes people think differently, or that can challenge their own ideas somewhat."
