LAURA HESP

Although she was born an artist, Laura was in survival mode and healing from a traumatic upbringing for most of her life. After the death of her father in 2016, Laura focused on bringing attention to mental health and people experiencing homelessness.

 

Having written about social issues for many years, it wasn't until 2018 that she lost a friend to suicide and sought new ways of expressing her pain.

Through art, community, and humour Laura helps others thrive in the overwhelming space between fear and self-actualization.

Her work is a reflection of that journey inwards.

Artist Statement

After decades of abusing myself to become the 'perfect' woman, I explanted and began the journey back to self.

 

Painting real human bodies reminds both the muse and I that our rawest selves are a complete work of art on their own.

It's an honour to hold space for that experience.
