I am Laura Cameron, born and bred in lovely Northern Ireland, studied in beautiful Wales, spent a few years as an English teacher in England and now I am enjoying life as a self employed artist and jewellery designer maker and part time adult education tutor living in the beautiful Scottish borders.
My photography tends to reflect my love of being outside and my work is heavily influenced by my own sense of the places I'm drawn to again and again. Having been thoroughly consumed in teaching and the desire to be 'useful' I did not pick up a paint brush for years since my degree but now I've been challenged to reconsider what 'useful' is.
This blog is a record of my attempts to get back into painting and drawing, to learn new skills with my jewellery making, to explore the inspiration around me and see where it takes me.
Thanks for stopping by!
