Digital ARTIST
Laura Shepherd is a multidisciplinary artist, designer and creative director based in London. 

Coming from an artisanal creative background, a purposeful switch from material to digital was made in 2012. Digital sculpture is rendered as still life photography, motion graphic screen animations, and most recently Augmented and Virtual reality experiences (AR, VR). From material objects that tend towards the decorative arts and product design, to abstract ethereal experiences to stimulate the emotions. The artistic process moves between dimensions and realms, mixing realities to absorb and sometimes confound the viewer.
Less an exploration or study, more an unsolicited reaction and expression of observations on contemporary society and culture. Anthropological, philosophical and informed by diverse esoteric idea systems and beliefs, the work presents a distinctive perspective on modern life. Aesthetics are drawn from the nature of Art Nouveau, and the intense experience of trippy 60s psychedelia, to craft high definition renderings akin to contemporary design.
