Laura Dennis

Laura studied Art & Design at Leeds University. Her practice focuses on contemporary landscape painting, working in oils and watercolour onto clay. She has 10 years of teaching experience and has exhibited throughout the UK and in her own studio and gallery space.

Describe your approach to teaching
I take a learner-led approach to teaching, working with students to meet individual needs and creative goals. I always strive to ensure student development through careful nurturing and responsive tuition.

What inspires your own work?
My biggest source of inspiration is encounters with the British landscape. I’m particularly interested in capturing the space between edges, soft boundaries and essences of memory and feeling of a place.
