“Every artist was first an amateur.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Laura is a very quiet and intensely shy person. She has recently started to come out of her shell more, but it is (and always has been) a struggle to connect with her. Her insular character means she responds bashfully to any compliment and will often undermine it. “I’m not that good.” “I traced it….” “I’m not an artist.”
Laura works with intense focus and develops beautiful little details in her work. Though she might not consider herself artistic she produces vibrant works with a child-like cheerfulness to them. She has a child, and you can see ask she works that she is creating pieces for them. Though she may not be a boundary-pusher or a conceptual designer she continues to create works that bring joy. Though they are often simple the are made with care and passion, and there is no doubt in the rest of the group’s mind–she is truly an artist.
