About

LAURA DING-EDWARDS

Laura started her creative career in watercolour art, running the successful online business Rainbird Roots.

 

In 2018 she wrote a poem while sat in her car which went viral on social media. The Mountain gained traction rapidly and it was soon clear that her focus had shifted away from art and into poetry. 

Laura released her first poetry compilation, also titled The Mountain, in 2019 which debuted at No.1 in Amazon's Hot New Releases. It continues to sell well both in the UK and the USA and has extraordinary reviews.

Laura's second poetry book, Still, is due for release in 2021, alongside a new version of The Mountain poem, an illustrated children's collaboration with American graphic artist Anna-Laura Sullivan.

Laura's creative focus remains very much rooted in working to talk more candidly about mental illness, documenting both the fragility and strength of being human.
