My work represents my inner life and my relationship to others.
As a child, Laure was lucky enough to attend a specialized school where the creative arts were given pride of place. An Art History teacher passed on his passion and encouraged her in this direction. As an adult, she enrolled in various training courses: the Sornas school of artistic and advertising drawing, the Nicolas Poussin workshop (painting courses) and the La Passelle training course (decorative painting and trompe l'oeil). These experiences enabled her to develop a personal style. Since 2001, Laure has worked on a number of projects, including posters for UNESCO's "Children of the World" and a metro map cover (Paris). She gives drawing lessons for children in collaboration with Gérard Garouste's La Source association (painter and sculptor).
Laure gathers and glues old paper and fabrics full of tiny treasures. She paints on thick cardboard to create overlapping effects. Her colours are basic and she plays with glazes. Her work thrives on feminine and intimate life. One canvas leads to another and so on. Landscapes and characters coexist and interchange on the canvas. This is a game between paintings and textures where the viewer seeks and penetrates the work gradually. Laure has two universes related to each other: abstract painting, a kind of meditative space, and the depiction of landscapes playing with lights and colour combinations of known or imaginary countries which exude a sense of tranquillity and sweetness.
