Welcome to Folky Flo.
I am Laura Roberts-Bevan a mixed media artist.
I originally trained in the 1980's as a graphic designer then worked as an illustrator.
Some time in 1990 I gave up being creative. I spent a long time in the wilderness not creating. Gradually with time (10 years!) the need to create came back. Working with fabrics, paper clay and illustrating. Inspired by nature, animals, antique fabrics and objects. A lover of London, my home town and also of urban countryside, which I walk and explore.
Now it is my life, the inspirations reflect in my work whether it is a paper clay animal or an art doll, a floral painted wooden panel, or a fabric collage art work. Then occasionally returning to my first love of line illustration.
I am always busy, never bored.
I am based in North London where I have a little studio at the end of my garden. It is crammed full of books, papers, fabrics, wooden boxes that will all be used one day, someway or another!
