I'm Laura a 28 year old, from a little town in Yorkshire, England, which is where I live with my cat mog..

Altered Art and Zine making... I use a lot of old images either from books or photographs or magazines, I use seed beads a lot and buttons as I sew..
I'm trying to improve my lino printing and learn how to make handmade stamps right now.
I can turn my hand to a lot of things as I was brought up in a very crafty family..
Love art also- drawing things for zines and making small pieces of artwork for friends and family..
I write illustrated perzines usually or make art zines.
My two recent zines are:
Briefcases: which is about an experience in hospital.
Autonomy: A zine about autism, self advocacy and discrimination.
Meat / Gelatine (I am vegetarian).
Fears: Spiders and Santa
I will not flake.. If you don't receive something from me, then its got lost in the post- if you don't receive something please contact me by private message.
Also if anything is wrong with the swap I've sent you or it didn't meet requirements, before you rate a 1 or 3, contact me and I'll try fix any mistakes I made.
I have a disability that affects my understanding of language and although it's very unlikely I will make mistakes because I go through things so many times- it is possible as with anyone.
