Laura Harris | Abstract painter

Described as 'beautifully imperfect' Laura's paintings speak to an inner voice often ignored - with strikingly bold colours and texture, each one takes you on a journey that requires contemplation and offers discovery.
Mostly self-taught, Laura began painting in her teens.
With her draftsman father teaching her perspective and technique, he also encouraged freedom of expression.
Before becoming a 'serious' painter, Harris had a small graphic design company that specialized in corporate identity.

In 2001, her successful business gave way to her full time art career.
It is a very exciting time for Laura - with a run of successful shows and critical acclaim, she is continuing her journey with a strong sense of play, and refreshing confidence and flare.
