Laura Hudson studied fine art at both Edinburgh and Glasgow schools of Art in the 1980s. She graduated from the avant-garde Environmental Art department in Glasgow and went on to study Film and Video at post-graduate level at Central St. Martins College of Art in London. Laura specialised in expanded cinema and moving image, which later developed into a career promoting artists' film and new media.

In 2009, while living in France, the changing light compelled her to paint what was impossible to capture with a camera and she began a return to fine art. In 2012 she returned to England to focus on her practice. Settling in Devon she now teaches experimental drawing and paints full-time.

Cévennes Magic Hour Winter, Oil on Board, 2012
Painting is my equilibrium, like thinking through a brush. I am drawn to the natural environment and feel compelled to paint what I see and feel; the energy of the land and the things that grow on it. My background in cinematography informs my paintings, but perhaps surprisingly, in paint I feel more able to explore light, time and space than in the moving image.

My paintings and drawings are conversations in light folding-in-time, shuffled by memory and imagination. I am interested in the conflict between the vertical depths of painted space, where time has no fixed dimension, and the surface in flux.

Our world took millions of years to evolve but what is visible shifts moment to moment.
