‘I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.’

Frida Kahlo


About Me


Thank you for visiting my website.

My name is Laura Papple and I am currently in my third and final year of the Bachelor of Design and Arts at Wanganui Ucol, majoring in visual arts.

Becoming an artist has been a dream of mine since I was very young.

As an energetic little girl, art was where I found peace. It was the only thing I could truly get emerged in. I don’t remember a time where ‘artist’ wasn’t the answer to the “what do you wanna be when you grow up” question.

Years have gone by and that love of creating has remained the same. It might be more serious now, but art is still where I find my own peace.

I am constantly changing and growing as a person and I think my art reflects that.
