Laura is a freelance illustrator based in Glasgow where she works full time from her studio in the Briggait. After graduating with a first class degree in illustration from the College of Art at the University of Edinburgh back in 2017 she’s been honing in her style that originated at art school ever since, producing a body of new work over the last several years.
Her intricate pieces are all made meticulously from different layers of paper, cut with scissors and finished with finely painted details. These are then photographed by Laura and edited for reproduction, providing a final print that has depth, texture and a novelty charm. Through pairing her distinctive style with her own writing and creating bold images often on a miniature scale,
Laura's portfolio explores many themes including childhood, faith, location and personalities.
She's a member of the Paper Artist Collective and is proudly represented by Illo Agency. Her recent clients include The V&A Dundee, Bravery Magazine, Nicola Benedetti, Not on the High Street, G. F. Smith, and Elle Magazine.
