Laura Downs

Continuously inspired by the plethora of patterns and textures that surround her at work, mixed media artist and re staff member, Laura Downs, creates work that incorporates as many materials as she can manage, including cut paper, fabric, and an assortment of salvaged objects and materials.  Laura studied Sustainable Development and has been focused on material reuse in her professional work in theater set design and green building.  She likes to always travel with scissors, glue, needle and thread so that she can make art with whatever materials she finds, wherever she is.
