Laura Donefer

Laura Donefer

Laura Donefer distinguishes her work in two parts based on her emotional inspirations: the happy, beautiful baskets that make people smile, and her “darker work” which has pulled from themes of assault and depression. As an artist, she finds inspiration for her eccentric work in everyday locations.
