Conquer the fear of the unfamiliar and the unfathomable and look below the surface to discover a world of serenity-inducing colour, entrancing light patterns of celestial beauty and deep, wonderful mystery.

Laura’s art emerges from a deep calling for the sea, which turned into an all-consuming passion.

This was no easy calling as the sea originally was a source of terror. But irresistibly drawn, Laura persevered until the point where, after many years, she became able to look around not only without fear, but with utter wonder.

Laura began to take underwater pictures in 2013, with a particular interest in frozen water motion, light and water effects, caustics, solar flares, flowing patterns and natural gradients from deep blue to darkness which point the unexplored vastness below the sea.

From early 2015 she started to produce quality photographs (“Ocean Trance” and “Underwater Topography”) and in the past year, to digitally combine photography and drawing. The result is a combination of the sea and the cosmos, notably Deep Blue Cosmos, driven by an endless fascination for the similarities between outer space and the abyss: limitless and hostile wildernesses, light-studded spans of darkness, weightlessness, loss of spatial direction, immense and inexhaustible wonder.

More recently she has started to produce purely digital abstract art (“Breathe” and “Pyroclastic Flow”), all inspired from near or afar by the ocean and a sense of oneness with the elements.

The majority of Laura’s pictures are taken free diving off wild beaches in the South of France. The freedom of weightlessness, the serenity of free diving, a profound sense of oneness with nature leading to aesthetic contemplation, and a deep calling which we all can feel for the sea: these are all things that Laura conveys in her work.

Laura is French and lives both in France and in the U.K. Read Less
