Painting Meets Fashion / Laura De Carteret
Laura De Carteret's body of work bases itself upon the interdisciplinary spectrum between painting and fashion design. Initially a painter, Laura has recently started exploring and developing her own range of jewellery.
Being young and having a full time job, starting a small business can often prove to be difficult. Laura outlines this eloquently in her submission:
"I realise now, how stupid it was to have so much self doubt about pursuing a creative career, it was all in my head but it's so easy to let the fear of everyone else stop you from doing what you want. Creating is and always will be such a big part of who I am. It grounds me and will always be my medicine for personal mental health".
