Laurie’s work explores moments of quiet, where the subject engages in a private dialogue with their environment. This could be a space in the natural world, an urban landscape or within their imagination.
While first building the image through hand drawn line, Laurie brings her work to life through silk screen printing. She uses a muted colour palette which helps to convey a sense of calm reflection. Her Rainbow Powers Series celebrates imagination, happiness and hope. Starting life as a sketchbook scribble to entertain her young daughter, they took on a new resonance with the start of the pandemic, symbolising the resilience of children and their inspiring ability to live only in the present moment.
Highlights from past exhibitions include ‘Featured Artist’ at Edinburgh Printmakers, ‘The Great Print Exhibition’ at Rheged, ‘Blisters’ at Print Club London and ‘Dazzle’ at The National Theatre London
