Laura Edgar

From Newcastle Upon Tyne, Laura now lives in Whitley Bay and works part time as a professional artist. In the mediums of textiles and mixed media and with a focus on traditional and modern embroidery techniques, she creates original art pieces, prints, crafts, garments and handmade cards. Formats of art works include wall hangings, box canvas and framed pieces.

‘I am fascinated by texture and find inspiration in the local coastline, the sea, the changing elements, decay, vintage ephemera, nostalgia etc. The eclectic range of mediums in which I work are fused by a signature use of atmospheric hues, collage and textural embellishment.’

Initial inspiration is noted through photographs and sketches, then a spontaneous approach and exploration and manipulation of chosen medium, results in works which can be abstract or more literal in form.
