Laura with her husband, Justin
So Laura, tell me a little bit about yourself:
I am a Christian woman artist from Florida, but am currently living in the UK. I am a makeup artist, painter, and Photographer. I have been married for almost 4 years and am loving every moment of it.
How did you get into art?
I have loved art ever since I can remember. I love being creative, getting my hands dirty and finding new things to work on. I got into Photography just last year because I finally got a great camera. I have been wanting to dive into it for a long time, but never had the equipment to do it. Now that I do I can't stop! I love being really creative with it and it has no boundaries.
What is your favorite thing to take pictures of?
I love capturing moments of beauty in nature. I love the way the light hits a tree from behind and the rays of the sun comes poring through the branches making shadows. I also would really love to travel all over the world and take some candid shots of people in there cultures. I don't like poses... I like to catch people doing there thing and living life.
What is your favorite thing to do when not taking pictures?
Spending time with my very supportive husband and cooking.
I love all types of food and and being creative with it. I love the beach and traveling as well. My husband and I love being adventurous and going to new and exciting places.
What or who is your inspiration?
Wow.. Tough one.. I love art.. whether it is metal art, glass art, beautiful bright paintings, or Photography.. I am fickle when it comes to art. If I feel something tingle inside when I see something, I know it is special. I would love to have my house filled with an eclectic variety of art. Anything Bright, bold, and emotionally moving.
