I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia. Very much a suburban girl with big city dreams.
I was that kid fascinated by junk on the ground. I would come home with some strange object that I’d found.
I liked to draw and make things. To create. My hands were always dirty.
I remember the end of high school, sitting on the end of my bed crying because I was overwhelmed with the choices for my future. How can I choose between all my passions? I wanted to be an artist, an actor, a basketballer, a director a cameraman. It was all too much for this young girl to fathom.
I decided to study television production at Charles Sturt University.
I have been working in television since 2002. It was in Sydney in 2005 that I found my first note. In 2007 I moved to New York for three months, then Toronto for three years. I moved back to Sydney at the end of 2010 and moved to Sydney’s Inner West.
In Feb 2017, I launched my first book Found By Laura, at the opening night of my first exhibition. The response to the exhibition was incredible and inspiring and so I will be taking the project on the road.
