Hello and Welcome! I'm Laura, a mixed-media abstract artist from the picturesque Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Thank you for being here and embarking on an artistic journey with my online classes.

Class Materials

I encourage you to use what supplies you have and approach this class from a playful place. While I love Daniel Smith watercolour paints, I understand that they are a splurge. You can substitute for other paint brands, but I do suggest using good quality watercolour paper; it makes a big difference!
