Laura says: “My practice is guided by noticing and I use illustration as a means of understanding my surroundings; people; places; histories. Being directed by observation leads me to illustrate myriad topics that may delight, educate, amuse or challenge. Primarily working in pencil, paint and ink, I combine hand-drawn layers using traditional and digital printing methods, creating playful and engaging illustrations.”
