Laura Menzies studied at Birmingham University, where she graduated with a BA in Performing & Visual Arts before gaining an MA in Fine Art from Falmouth University. She is also an art teacher and educator, having taught at Falmouth University, St Ives School of Painting and the Eden Project. Her work has been widely exhibited in the UK (Tate Modern, Tate St Ives and Penwith Gallery) and internationally. She says: 'My lyrical, abstract paintings are like visual poems, spoken through constructs of memories, emotions and indirect references to place. These influences are not overt but are located on the edge of consciousness, gradually seeping in as the work evolves.'
