Medium: Mixed media on board
I am Laura, a west coast artist residing in Karamea. Originally a musician, painting is a great way to express myself through playing with light rather than sound. I like to go with the flow of creating, exploring the endless possibilities of my imagination. Loving the journey, hope you enjoy my art.
I use board because it’s great to work on and I can cut it to any shape or size I like. My intention with this artwork was to make something colourful, but not too bright. To create layers of colour and light and dark contrast. I’m inspired by anything space.
Covid has impacted my work as a musician greatly, I've lost a lot of potential income this year due to lockdown restrictions. Wasn't eligible for financial help, so all in all I can say the covid scam has negatively impacted all aspects of life. During lockdown I kept painting to stay sane and I'm having a pretty productive year because of it. There's always a silver lining in any situation. For me it was painting!
