Hi, I’m Laura, a freelance illustrator based in the UK who loves vintage things and drawing people. I have worked with international clients on projects from packaging to editorial, in sectors from food and drink to lifestyle… In addition to working from my home studio at the Cotswolds, I enjoy working with luxury brands at live illustration events. I have illustrated live in both Harrods and Selfridges as well as at private events.

I used to work as an in-house artist for a large memorial company where I hand-etched portraits onto gravestones (yes, it’s a real job!) but my heart has always belonged to illustration, so in early 2018 I left my full-time job to pursue it. I am inspired by the elegance of the fashion illustration world as well as vintage photography and traditional Japanese painting. I illustrate using a traditional mediums, brush pens and markers, combined with lots of digital magic in Photoshop and Procreate.
