About me


Lara Hawthorne is currently living and working in Bristol, UK. She recently graduated with a First Class Honours from Falmouth University where she studied Illustration. Since graduating, she's been shortlisted for the Lowry Children's Book Award and has published a children's book called Herberto in both Portuguese and French. Last year she completed a Medieval themed soundscape for Little Ears Radio, and an illustration of the mythological Owlman for Merchants Manor magazine. She is also part of the 'Beginning Middle End' collective, which is a small group of like-minded illustrators based in Bristol. Lara is most interested in narrative illustration, but also has experience in design and editorial, as well as scientific illustrations. Her main influences are folklore; natural history; Henri Rousseau; Marlenka Stupica and Tove Jansson,
