Laura Segan (b. 1987, Coventry) is a visual artist, working primarily in textiles and photography. She lives and works in Devon, UK. Her artwork focuses on the connection between mental health and creativity and the exploration of the traditional crafts as modern fine art. Her work carries narratives around connection with nature, exploration of self, mental health and creativity, narratives and life stories.
Laura received her BA in Fine Art Photography from Camberwell College of Art and Design in 2003 and more recently, her MA in Art Psychotherapy from the University of South Wales. She splits her time between her art practice and her Art Psychotherapy work, in which she works with children and young people who are struggling with their mental health. She has been creative since her time at Camberwell, while travelling and teaching, but wasn’t able to pursue art as a professional career in earnest until the COVID lockdown of 2020. Since then, she has exhibited in many group exhibitions and had her first solo exhibition in Bath, in March 2022.
