Laura Cid Sagarra (Lleida, 1972). Médico y ergónoma de profesión. Mi inquietud creativa resurgió tras la ilustración de historias educativas para mis hijos. Con avidez experimental y autodidacta hasta 2016, momento en el que comencé formación reglada descubriendo diferentes lenguajes estéticos. Con predilección por el retrato infantil, así como por obras abstractas, matéricas y texturadas. Percibo el arte como una forma libre de expresión y transmisión de sentimientos: hablo de mis sueños y vida cotidiana a través de él, ya sea a través del dibujo, la pintura, la escultura o la fotografía, generando un soplo de aire fresco que conecta mis emociones con todo lo que lo rodea.
