Laurie studied illustration at The University of the West of England, graduating in 2010. She was shortlisted for the Macmillan prize that same year and has been honing her illustrations for the children’s book market since.
Sketching in pencil before creating her colour art entirely digitally, Laurie uses a loose line, and plenty of texture in an effort to recreate the traditional hand-made aesthetic which she admires so much in others.
Her first book commission, POEMS OUT LOUD! will be publishing with Ladybird later this year, and with plenty of exciting projects in the pipeline we’ll be sure to have more announcements from her soon.
