About this event

Hounslow’s Hidden Heroes by Laura Edralin will launch online on Monday 28 September 2020 at 5.30pm.

To celebrate, we will host a special online Meet the Artist event, with the opportunity to view the exhibition, hear from Laura about her work, and see a demonstration of her techniques.

Featuring portraits of local people, this project celebrates the ordinary people in the community doing extraordinary things. Many are helping to support and unite society through distributing food, helping people in need of advice and by improving their local area.

The portraits are made digitally using continuous lines, symbolising the ways in which we are all interconnected. Each person featured has been nominated by a colleague, friend or family member for their remarkable contribution to the community.

Laura is an artist specialising in calligraphy, and continuous line portraits. Working in a high-profile arts and music industry for many years, she explored mindfulness and creativity to support her mental health and wellbeing journey. After reconnecting with her creative outlet and love of line drawings, her work has become a popular space for celebrating flowers, figures and faces, using unbroken lines to create these pieces. Laura is passionate about improving people’s wellbeing, she has worked with organisations, such as the Royal Albert Hall, to establish and develop wellbeing committees and strategies. Laura co-founded the UK National Arts Wellbeing Collective, a platform for organisations and individuals within the Arts, Heritage, Cultural and Production industries to find wellbeing resources and support. lauraletterslife.com
