While many search for mindfulness in the things they do, Laura has discovered that the mindlessness is the state of mind necessary to create. It removes over-thinking and instead allows Laura’s practice to flow.

In an effort to help shake an eight-year hiatus on her art practice and loosen up her head and hand for her more arduous works, Laura took to a classic visual artists’ study technique, continuous line drawing. This technique is traditionally used as a preliminary study of an object before completing a more detailed rendition. The artist looks both at the subject and the paper, quickly moving over the paper never removing the pen. For Laura, this technique assists (even enforces) the act of ‘under thinking’ as it promotes the use of sensation and instinct over perception.

In finding her artistic freedom through the continuous line technique, Laura celebrates what normally dwells artists' sketchbook pages, shining a light on the technique as an art form in its own right.
