Laura Davidson is an artist and educator, passionate about making art accessible to all. She grew up in Fort Worth, attending FWISD schools. Laura graduated from Austin College in Sherman in 2012, majoring in Visual Art focused in 3D works and installation.​

Laura taught public elementary and high school art in Dallas while writing curriculum and development for art teachers from 2013-2019. She served students and teachers at her elementary campus as a reading interventionist from 2019-2021. She teaches adult art classes and holds her studio practice at Trade Oak Cliff.

Laura is interested in the objects that we collect and keep as a kind of modern anthropology. She repurposes paper and domestic materials into her work, both as a compulsion to create from abundant waste and as exploration of nostalgia and our attachment to objects. She seeks to develop low waste art practices to divert waste items from landfills. For the past few years this has manifested as objects sculpted from recycled paper pulp and repurposed fabric for fiber works and installations. She recently had a studio as a part of Cohort 3 of The Cedars Union Arts Incubator and was a member of 500x gallery in Dallas, TX. 

Laura worked with Meow Wolf to build The Real Unreal immersive art experience in Grapevine, TX. She currently works for Meow Wolf as a manager of their "Art Team Task Force," working to plan future exhibitions and manage artists creating work in the field during projects' installation phase. Their next exhibit will be opening in Houston in 2024.
