Laura Davidson is an artist who makes books, drawings, mosaics and boxes. She incorporates many types of materials in her work, including wood, paper, wax, metals, and objects found in her eclectic collections. Her interest in mosaic and other classical methods frequently show up in her work. Maps, art history, travel, architecture and her love of birds are recurring elements in her visual vocabulary.

Laura grew up in Michigan, attended Michigan State University, and received a B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute. Since that time she has been living and working in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood, a downtown warehouse district that is home to a vibrant arts community, with her partner and daughter. She has received several grants for her work, and her books can be found in private collections and libraries throughout the United States and around the world.

Laura visited the RCAH to lead a number of activities with both the college’s book arts students and the general public.
