Meet the artist

lalliepaws-cropHello! I’m Laura 🙂

I’m a hobby-artist from England, UK. My favourite art mediums are pens and coloured pencils. I love sketchy styles and doodles, and anything bright and colourful. I have always enjoyed drawing and studied art throughout school; I achieved GCSE and A level art and was accepted onto a university art degree, but quickly found out that the course wasn’t for me. So for the last 10 years I’ve focused my energies on developing a career and business in something a bit more sciencey, but creative and fulfilling in its own way.

I now find myself returning to art, freshly inspired by artists such as Kirsty Mitchell and her spectacular Wonderland book; Thomas Astruc’s Miraculous Ladybug; and a whole host of amazing artists that I started to follow on Twitter in the last 6 months. I have been learning from and admiring all of this art from a distance and I have just started to dip my toe in the water to see what I can create for myself.
