ARTIST BIO

Laura Segan (b. 1987, Coventry) is a visual artist, working primarily in textiles and photography. She lives and works in Devon. Her artwork focuses on the connection between mental health and creativity, the exploration of the traditional crafts as modern fine art and manipulation of the traditional photographic image. Her fibre art and photographic work both carry 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 making artwork since her time at Camberwell, while travelling and teaching, and more recently since moving back to live in the UK full-time, has exhibited in Wales.
