About me
Laura is a freelance illustrator living in Pembrokeshire South West Wales. She has three daughters who are her biggest influences. Her older two daughters have various medical conditions which can have an impact on their self-esteem and cause them to feel different to their peers. Guiding them through these struggles has led Laura to think deeply about differences in humanity and explore themes such as diversity, body image and femininity through her artwork. Laura can work with a variety of mediums, but mostly enjoys pencil colours and digitally on her iPad. You can view Laura’s portfolio at and email her at
