A visual piece drawn live in one day on the foyer wall of the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff capturing people, encounters and connections that make up Chapter’s community. The drawing was part of a neighbourhood drop in day organised by AOC Architects for the Cardiff Creative Partnership part of a longer project looking at expanding and developing the use of Chapter and its spaces.

People wrote down memorable encounters related to the arts centre and as themes started to emerge I mapped connections between user groups (artists, local residents etc) and themes (food, films, love). Some drawings depict detailed stories and others I embellished to visualise what the experience could have been like.

The visual piece was kept up for several weeks and created a lot of positive engagement in social media.

  • Laura was booked by the Wales Deanery to make a graphic recording of our MedTRiM Course for doctors. She captured both the main learning outcomes of the course and the essence of the learning activities incredibly well. What she produced was so good we now use it on all MedTRiM Courses to set the scene for the day.

  • Laura was a pleasure to work with, both flexible and accommodating for our specific needs. The final piece produced on the day was of exceptional quality and I highly recommend her.

  • Laura’s unique work created an extremely exciting, vivid and innovative artwork that Chapter continues to profile through its marketing and promotional material.

  • She turned our research into a creative and effective set of scenarios. We would recommend anyone who wants to make their research come alive to work with Laura.

  • The work done by Laura was invaluable in helping others to understanding the innovation model clearly, and in a lively way that inspired and engaged people. Laura was very effective in clarifying the brief and making helpful suggestions to improve the final product.
