Laura Weston
Nature and coastal locations continue to provide the inspiration for Lauras work. She has created new digital Giclee prints for exhibition using an offset printing technique – “Swoop” and “Rockpool”, that have been featured in the Mostyn Gallery Llandudno “Into the Sea” artists and makers summer showcase in 2018. These larger works endeavour to capture a feeling of movement, particularly the circular compositions.

In her current creative practice Laura has a real curiosity to embrace traditional hand-making and digital processes. She has created iterations of her nature inspired themes and characters in felting, ceramic, iPadpro art, traditional printmaking and Giclee including :- the bird, the oyster catcher, the hare, the fox. These familiar creatures inhabit a colourful and imagined landscape – its a little world of her own.

The Butterfly Garden – a debut picture book illustrated by Laura was included in the Kirkus best picture books of 2017 

She works as a Lecturer in Animation at Staffordshire University- she enjoys being part of the creative community and is a member of the Oxton Artists.
