Solo exhibition by Laura Weston. Laura is a Wirral based designer of limited edition prints and applied art. She graduated with BA Honours in Fine Art in 1987 specialising in print and animation. She combines a successful career as a lecturer in animation with her commercial art practice established in 2010.
Her limited edition prints are carved by hand from a vinyl plate or matrix and printed by Laura using specialist papers and water-based inks. Recently she has started to experiment in a print studio translating her relief prints into larger limited edition silkscreen prints.
Laura draws on the domestic, nostalgic and emotionally resonant world of her sketchbooks for inspiration. The decorative, design driven nature of her work contains echoes in composition, line and colour from the block printed wallpaper sample books, which she admired as a child in her father’s painting and decorating shop.
