LAURA WHEELER

CO-ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

With a background in acting, street theatre and visual arts, alongside Ross she studied Street Arts at the University of Winchester where they first formed Hotch Potch. It was there where she discovered her passion for art on a tiny scale, making miniature urban intervention her focus. Laura has performed, directed and written work for Hotch Potch since the beginning and loves creating unique work for the street and outdoor events. She has recently become a new mum so has taken more to writing and managerial roles within the company.
