Laura Shallcrass is an artist based in Queenstown New Zealand. Born in Wellington, Laura trained as an illustrator and graphic designer, before traveling the world and becoming increasingly drawn in by the world of fine arts. Laura settled in Queenstown where her love of the outdoors informs and inspires her work. Work which in turn features flora, fauna and more recently gemstones and minerals hovering dreamlike against scenes both ethereal and familiar. Laura paints in oils and gouache and draws in ink and graphite, creating sparse and yet detail focused works of infinite depth and stillness.
