Laura Hickman

Established British Fine Artist, described as cutting edge and contemporary, Laura’s commissions have included private collectors and public organisations such as Birmingham Conservation Trust. She has exhibited throughout England, including Fresh Air, Quennington attracting over 13,500 visitors, Shugborough House, World of Wedgewood, two solo exhibitions at Bantock House, Wolverhampton and two contemporary art fairs at Newhampton Arts Centre, where Laura is a member on the board of trustees representing women and visual arts. Public art commissions have included three large scale pieces at Russells Hall Hospital and a large sculpture in a memorial garden, Birmingham.

Directly composing her subject matter on the chemically coated fibre based archival paper, and hand coated cyanotype paper, then ‘painting it with light’, using ‘photogenic drawing’ and cyanotype processes dating back to 1840s England, her beautiful images of varying ethereal tones are created and immortalised.

Laura, unafraid to experiment and push boundaries to achieve stunning results, also paints abstract and minimalistic Japanese art inspired pieces that show “a real eye for composition”.
