Artist Biography

Having previously worked as a solicitor for several years, Laura made the switch to a career in digital design in 2012. She founded Loveday Barnes in 2017 and now divides her time between branding and digital design work for clients and personal projects involving mixed media artwork and ceramics.

The Story Behind the Studio Name

Loveday Laura Barnes was Laura's Great Great Grandmother and namesake. A diminutive yet fierce Scotswoman, she immigrated to New Zealand with her young family in 1926. The studio name is a homage to her intrepid spirit and character.
