Katherine Laura

Laura has drawn her inspiration for this series from the calming and captivating presence of water within a busy city.  The translucent and reflective qualities of water against the night evoke an ethereal abstraction; the manipulation of light and constant flow contrasting against the static urban environment to capture the dualities of life, the opposites and simultaneous contrasts of night and day.  Born in Hawera, the Taranaki region in the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand. She studied Graphic Design in Wellington, New Zealand and is now based in Sydney after leaving New Zealand at the end of 1999. Laura spends her evenings writing and capturing images to illustrate her words and inspirations. She has a background in visual, musical and performance arts, she is a qualified industry course developer and martial arts trainer.
