The earliest series of Laura's work celebrated the iconic forms of Charles Eames, where she explored negative and positive shapes allowing the word tone of the surface to take part in the colour palette.
While themes have moved from one subject to another, the sentiment expressed in the quote from Eames still applies. Laura continues to find inspiration in found materials and in the practice of the screen printing; a satifying blend of intention and accident.
Spending her childhood in Winnipeg and later, teen years in Ottawa, Laura has been on the west coast for most of her days. Capilano 'College' was the place to be for design and illustration in the 80s and after graduating she settled into commercial work.
Laura illustrated for many publications and for commercial clients through her career. Locally, Vancouver Magazine and Western Living and throughout the US for magazines such as American Way, Woman's Day, New York Magazine, Detroit Monthly, San Francisco Focus. Elsewhere, Toronto Life and EnRoute magazine as well as Esquire Japan. Laura also worked on advertising and product packaging and images for corporate publications.
