As a child, Laura spent time at the Brooklyn Public Library where she explored her passion for literature, photography,& later painting. Her African and Caribbean-American heritage & love of stories, design, & color, are all elements in her work. Painting in sacred & secular styles, James exposes the sacrosanct and the ordinary. Her work is timeless. She has created a diverse body of work of secular and sacred work; icons that expand the collection of stories traditionally painted in this style. James is pleased to help black people see themselves in their sacred texts of African religions and Christianity, a place where racialized people have curiously been excluded in the west. James illustrated The Book of the Gospels lectionary, published by Liturgy Training Publications in 2001, In its 2nd edition, the book is used worldwide by numerous Christian denominations.

I’m a girl from a small rural village in Hungary. Growing up in humble but love filled surroundings, I always knew there’s more out there for me. In 2000 when I was 20, I moved to the UK and have created a new life that has been nothing less but incredible. I came a long way in the last 20 years. My family is my life, my husband and our two girls. Love, pure and simple. I’m a woman, a wife and a mummy but now I’m also a poet.
This year 2020 broke me in every way but that wasn’t the end. I rebuild me again bit by bit. I have grown, stronger, wiser while finding magic in writing. I’ve only been writing poetry since April. Poetry is my way to share my heart and soul with the world and I have so much more to give. Life is my theme and people.
I’m only at the beginning of this exciting adventure and I cannot wait to see where it will take me.

I have made it my mission to visit as many countries on the African Continent as time and funds permit. I am inspired to paint the energy of each experience.
My travels on the African continent have taken me south to South Africa, and Namibia where Dr. Debbie Sanders developed a program called Study Abroad in Africa to send University students from Historically Black Colleges to study for a semester at South African Universities. The students received credit for the course work required at that point in their academic career. Lincoln University was our school of record which facilitated the acceptance of credits between the Universities in the United States, and Africa. This program was a labor of love for Dr.Sanders, and I was proud to be apart of this reintroduction of young African Americans to the Mother continent. Therefore, I not only expose the viewer to the experience of The Ancestors through my art, but I do everything in my power to impress upon African Americans how returning to our African origins is a gift that we must all give ourselves. Few things give me more pleasure than sharing the stories of my travels on the African continent with young people! I want them to get fired up, and maybe skip France or England and go home to our Mother continent at least once.
My goal is to debunk hegemony, the misinformation which a vast majority of my people allow them to think less of their ancestral home.
I have delivered as honest and pure views on this subject as I currently have words to match the feelings in my heart. It is my prayer that as you view my work that you will not so much judge it for technique ( my work tends to look very whimsical, with strong messages), but for my heart, and the hearts of my Ancestors that were surely broken in life, but who celebrate each time a brother, a sister, a child, or cousin of theirs Returns Home!
“There’s a strange magic we encounter reading poetry. Something undefinable, a lifting of the spirit to match that of a writer who expresses in words what we thought had only existed, unspoken, in the heart. Have you ever had that moment, reading, when an artist’s words stop you in your tracks and make your jaw drop? Felt that rawness and exposure when someone captures in a poem what was once secret, hidden within your soul? Here we dig deep and unafraid. We find our inspiration in unexpected places and unearth that strange magic within.
