Laura is known for her work with cookies. Laura first started drawing when she was only 4 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the green pressure of being a child prodigy very much got to her and she had a delightful breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own left little finger! Laura found random inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bathroom for all the pillows to see! Laura eventually got married to the Pope and they remain together permanently in their football stadium with their 11 children. Laura would like to thank Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Spongebob and Andy Warhol for their constant support and inspiration.
What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part is to think of an idea for a concept and how to set it up. Shooting and post-processing is easier. For macro it is the other way round, finding something to shoot is easy, but getting a nice composition and the correct focus is sometimes quite difficult.
Where and how do you find inspiration?
Inspiration can be everything, a picture or a situation I have seen or something I have read, heard or talked about with someone.
What do you feel is the significance of online communities, such as deviantART, to aspiring artists?
I think it is the possibility to share the own pictures with many people from different backgrounds, getting feedback, see other people's pictures and take part in projects or contests.
What is the weirdest, strangest or funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I have a picture of a heart-shaped cactus and someone commented that he loved cacti and that he had a phallic-shaped. Then he wrote a bit about what he thought on german porn film-business because that was everything he knew about Germany. It was actually quite funny, but had absolutely nothing to do with the picture and made me think about hidden messages in my pictures that I did not know of.
What advice can you offer to other artists?
To find inspirations and to constantly work on the techniques in order to improve themselves.
