Laura Baxter

Nature has always been central to my life and work.   I have always enjoyed making things, particularly small things. I was born and raised in the countryside of the Lincolnshire Wolds. From an early age I made tiny objects as homes for ladybirds, seeds and tiny flowers from the garden. Life in miniature and delicate features in plants and nature, have always captivated me and made me smile. As a child both my parents taught me the art of seeing and to understand and appreciate the beauty of the natural world. My immediate surroundings, plants and wildlife remain a boundless source of inspiration for my work and life.

I have been making precious jewellery and objects in metal for 16 years.  In that time I have developed a distinctive and unique voice for my work. My jewellery is well known for its graphic and stylised interpretation of plants; it is much admired and has undoubtedly influenced the work of others . An intense drawing project in 1999 at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London, played a key role in developing my interest in the growth, structure and diversity of plants.

The results can be seen in the distinctive style of my work.
