Laura Rich
I studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Bath Spa UC, specialising in illustration. However, the last few years have seen a shift of focus from illustration to painting.

My painting is an attempt to explain the emotional connection to the landscape that surrounds us on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. I regularly visit the Dorset coast for inspiration, but most of my work is centred around the Downs surrounding our home town of Mere, Wiltshire.

My work is a combination of sketches and painting outside, photos, gut feeling and emotional state at the time. I am not trying to represent a landscape figuratively, although the starting point is always from my sketchbook and memory of a place. I am moreover trying to connect with how I felt at the time of sketching. The light, the weather and who is with me (often my daughter Evie who likes to sketch with me). What results is an intuitive response to those factors.
