Laura is interested in mapping stories and experiences, with her illustrations articulating emotions and opinions, often in a humorous manner. For Swansea, Laura is undertaking her largest drawing project to date, an 8 x 8ft cube situated in Swansea City Centre. This will captures the many different voices and stories of Swansea in Sorvala’s unique style. Three sides of the cube will be done in the studio in response to her research in the city, with a live onsite drawing event takes place during on 14th September to complete the work.
