Laura Chaplin is an artist, specialising in printmaking, and teacher of art. She practises in the use of printing, dying/removal of colour and collage to create multi-layered artworks. Her pieces range in size from large canvas backed pieces or free hanging panels, to small, fragile works encased in acrylic blocks.
"My art practice revolves around looking and seeing – pattern, colour, texture, contrast, harmony, dynamics. Seeing overlooked beauty in nature and in the manmade world. Finding inspiration wherever it presents itself. I love being an artist, having an artist’s eyes and brain. Having the ability to see potential in the mundane. This process of looking keeps me happy, energized and at peace all at the same time."
