My name is Laura Hepworth I am a Conceptual Artist based in East Dulwich, SE London.
My practice explores the processes of creativity and connection. Utilising drawings, painting, printmaking, large scale sculpture and installation, as a means to transform the familiarity of the everyday into what is perceived as uncanny.
Since obtaining my degree, I have hosted numerous exhibitions across South East London & Kent. Including a feature as a shortlisted artist to the CVAN Platform Graduate Showcase at the Turner Contemporary , in 2015.
Now, as a supporter of small business and campaigns, like Just A Card, my creativity is not confined to the canvas. As I use my imagination, to come up with collaborations and ideas of ways of supporting other businesses in a way that helps me to grow.
