Laura is a freelance illustrator based in Glasgow where she works from a studio
in the Briggait, following a recent stint of working and running her small business in London.
After graduating with a first class degree in illustration from the College of Art at the
University of Edinburgh 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 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.
and is now proudly represented by Illo Agency. Her clients include Bravery Magazine,
MadeBrave, Nicola Benedetti, G. F. Smith, Edinburgh Futures Institute and Elle Magazine.
