By pushing the boundaries of digital embroidery design, she stretches and layers stitches to create unusual and exciting textures, and investigates exciting ways of embroidery forming into fabric itself, creating innovative lace forms that are bold and unique.
Inspired by a deep cultural fascination with tribal art, Laura designs from traditional objects accumulated on personal travels around the world, further influenced by the bold, rich colours of Mayan art.
Her design process, allows her to design shapes individually, then to carefully construct these pieces together to form playful motifs.
These formations come to life, as they are manipulated by hand to build quirky character compositions that are full of charisma.
Her textile product range spans from framed art pieces, to jewellery, to purses.
This variety allows her designs to be practical, beautiful, and original with each different product, and pushes her to adapt the techniques, shapes and colours to suit her range.
