Story World

In 2011 Laurel left a career in teaching to move to Western Australia with her young family. She used this two-year period to develop a new body of work which she titled the Feral State. An internal story world developed for Laurel of birds calling children to escape their urban lives and re-connected with the wild. Her paintings from this period are dream like illustrations of a story that is implied but never told.
