About The Artist

Originally from the North of England, Laura is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto, Ontario with an education in fibre and fashion arts. Inspired by the overlapping of nature and magic (and a love of tattoos), Laura has always had a passion for art, her grandfather nurtured this passion from an early age and encouraged her in all creative endeavours.
Over the years she has enjoyed a wide range of creative outlets including painting with acrylics, gouache and watercolours, crochet, embroidery and weaving and often finds herself lost in texture and colour.
 
She studied textile arts for a while with the Open College of Arts in England and completed a certificate in Fashion Arts in Canada. A full portfolio of work can be found at www.lauraemily.com
