Laura Eccleston

Laura Eccleston was born in Sussex, England and spent her childhood exploring the south-downs and the beaches of England's southern coast forming an early love of the sea and adventure. As a teenager, she moved northwards, finally settling in the West Midlands and went on to win local art competitions and work extensively with local community film and media art groups, going on to complete a GNVQ national diploma in Graphic Design at the Herefordshire College of Art & Design.

Moving to London in 1999, Laura went on to forge a career in a more technical avenue of web and graphic design with the emergence of the internet, working for one of the top ten advertising agencies in the UK, which helped catalyse her love of colour, design and technical frameworks.

Eventually moving back to the Midlands to focus more on her art, Laura enjoyed exhibiting privately in numerous collections throughout the UK as an acrylic artist and developed the brand HappyBerry, teaching creativity in yarn to now over a million people worldwide.

In 2019 Laura decided to step away from these more outside expectations of creativity and accurate depictions of visual realities to focus solely on painting with an emphasis of freeing up her creative spirit through the use of abstraction using gestural marks, geometric shapes and colour to achieve this aim.
