The text below is Lisa’s introduction to my interview:

______________________

“We are delighted to introduce the artwork of Laura Elliott. We were first introduced to Laura’s work online and quickly became a follower of her unique style. When Laura applied to exhibit her work at FLUX Exhibition we were instantly taken with her art and were eager to show her distinctive creations. Laura is an artist that works with both paint and metal clay. It was her metal clay work that really grabbed our attention. Laura is an artist who has harvested her creativity from a very young age. After studying and finding her form Laura now works with metal clay and precious and semi-precious gemstones. Her work is intricate and beautiful displaying rawness and luxury, a combination that adds to the beauty of her work.

Laura has gallery representation and takes part in numerous exhibitions within the UK and internationally. One thing we are sure of is the journey Laura is taking is an exciting one, she is an artist with passion and drive, she is an artist that is not afraid to take on new challenges. Laura we love your work, we love the concept that we could wear a unique, stunning and impact piece as jewellery – it’s as personal as it can get with contemporary art. Just marvelous – thank you for sharing your thoughts and inspirations with us.”

Laura Elliott’s art is remarkable. She is passionate about mixed-media painting and creating metal clay jewellery with real gemstones. Her artwork and jewellery explore colour and form. Her art is a mixture of memory and emotion and she always feels a need to create. Creativity is quite a cathartic process with her and that allows her feelings to be shown within her art.”

Global Reactive Art Exhibition: Voluntary Support Role

“This year in May 2017 I successfully ran the Global Reactive International Art Exhibition UK from Mardleybury Gallery with support and help of other key individuals in the background. The preparation for the exhibition started in May 2016 as there was much to organise . I was very fortunate to have the help of other professional artists, who also believed in the project and who were happy to give their time for free, Laura was one of those artists.

Laura shared her expertise in curating and in particular the details around understanding the more complex nature of dealing with writing the clear terms and conditions required when dealing across the multinational facets.
Laura’s knowledge helped to unpin the project and helped to widen my knowledge in tandem.

I would recommend Laura as a valuable and strong team member to anyone looking to set up and run a project in the field of the ‘Arts’.”

“In 2016 I decided to run an international art competition for 2017 that would offer a tangible award for the winning Artist.

“Regarding the Qualifications of Laura H. Elliott, BA (Hons) I am pleased to write a letter highly recommending Laura H. Elliott. In the many years I have known and worked with Ms. Elliot, I have been extremely impressed with her artistic abilities and numerous accomplishments. Ms. Elliott is an extremely intuitive and talented artist. She maintains an excellent standard for her artistic work . Her technical prowess and creativity seem to flow from her without effort. She applies sensitivity and originality to every artistic project, whether it is painting, sculpture or her metal clay—landscape gems. Her work has been exhibited in many shows throughout Europe and the USA.

Ms. Elliott also takes part in an impressive plethora of activities, particularly those supporting other artists. For example, Ms. Elliott created and was director of “The ‘International Association of Two and Three Dimensional Artists’ (IATTDA), of which I was a member. Her mission was to “organize genuine, free or affordable exhibitions for the wonderful artists in both the UK and overseas.” She knew that artists would need to depend upon her integrity and honesty to create a trustworthy exhibition program. She did not let us down. Over time, the membership grew, and Ms. Elliot began to expand the locations of exhibitions to include Europe and USA. She personally curated every exhibition, which included direct and timely email support for artists. She organized and marketed each public and private viewing and served as a liaison between the artists and the galleries. In addition, she sourced discounts with art companies such as Derwent and Spectrum. She kept close contact with members and supplied each of the participating artist with a membership pack.

Her ability to produce this project so seamlessly was extraordinary. In short, I cannot more highly recommend Ms. Laura H, Elliott as both an artist and a strong and capable supporter of the artistic community.

Sincerely, Cary Griffiths Painter/Director Art At The Main”
