Laura Foster is a textile based artist in the West Midlands. Her most recent work is titled 'Dark Nature' where she explores nature taking over the human form through a collection of head pieces and masks. Having a love for fashion she fuses this with art to create a range of masks using a variety of materials like beads, studs, PVC and more recently a 3D pen. She includes different forms of nature like thorns, water and flowers which allows her to create various textures. She draws inspiration from fashion designers Alexander McQueen and Iris Van Herpen, who have clear links to nature and innovative design, as well as life cycles and nature.
