Throughout the Bible, rocks and gems are used as altars, beauty and symbols of anointing or prophecy. I wanted to explore this concept and the possibility of understanding the unseen meaning of a stone. My "Gems" collection is about understanding the hidden landscapes of the soul, about putting the focus on our emotions, memories, desires and hidden potential through the visual.
I am currently working at YWAM Berlin, as a pioneer in ONE School for artist, a program that runs in partnership with YWAM Barcelona and YWAM Baltimore, USA. The vision of ONE School is to help artists around the world understand their identity in God, cultivate their potential as artists, and bring life, truth and wonder to their communities and cultures. Proceeds from these sales will help support Laura's project at ONE School for Artists and YWAM Berlin.
