I'm Laura. I'm an illustrator, and I often write too.

I grew up in the Scottish Borders, studied Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and have lived in Dundee since 2007. I work in a shed in my garden.


My work is grounded in observational drawing and storytelling, and I delight in noticing new details in familiar spaces. I like to share this joy through my work, creating subtle visual jokes and layers of narratives. My characterful, hand-drawn illustrations feature in projects including activity books and trails, murals, and a graphic novel.

For more details, here's my CV.


My first picture book is out now! Written by Kate Abernethy, The Great Highland Games Chase is published by Floris Books.


My project with Glasgow Children's Hospital was featured in the Guardian: A Space with a Soul.
