DIRECTOR - Flinders Lane Gallery, Melbourne.

The first thing that strikes me here is the interesting composition. Laura has anchored the work with a dynamic yellow vase in a strong arrow-like shape and from this branching across the surface are the outlined, in the manner of a printmaker, proteas. The surfaces are varied and add to the overall interest of the piece

DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

A contemporary artwork that combines both landscape and still-life genres. I am immediately drawn to the striking mustard vessel: the key visual feature of this work. This is a gorgeous painting which would immediately lift a lifeless room. I would position this work in a living space where I could emphasise and highlight the red blooms with additions of sim- ilar-coloured soft furnishings or ornaments.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

Laura’s work conjures up memories of holidays in the Australian bush. It’s a robust work that would hold its own in a busy kitchen environment – the heart of any home. The use of bold and complementary colours is captivating.
