Laura Slade

Laura creates wonderful loose watercolours in an expressive way using bold, bright colours and losts of white space.

Laura says of her work, "have always had a love of animals and nature, and growing up in a farming family, surrounded by wildlife and the rugged landscape of the Yorkshire Dales has provided me with lots of inspiration. I began experimenting with watercolour after the birth of my daughter and developed my own expressive and colourful way of painting. My work embraces the unique qualities of watercolour, using vibrant colour and expressive brushstrokes to depict the natural world. I take great pleasure in applying bright watercolour to paper and watching the paint take on a life of it's own."
