Hello! I’m Laura, an illustrator and graphic recorder known for creative thinking and being able to turn key ideas into engaging illustrations.
Passionate about collaboration and contributing to meaningful projects, my approach combines well honed skills in visual thinking and illustration. Working both digitally and by hand, I enjoy creating through experimentation and discovery, and take pride in providing spaces for others to do the same.
I’ve brought my expertise, enthusiasm and can-do attitude to agencies, research teams, local government, charities and corporations worldwide. I’ve been hired by IKEA, Nesta, The Young Foundation, Ordnance Survey, Tate, Welsh Government, the NHS and several universities, innovation and service design agencies.

Laura not only captured the key points of the discussion but also the spirit of our Charter for Change Advocacy Group aims and aspirations. Seeing the live illustration in progress at the workshop drew positive attention and the finished piece supports the narrative in our formal charter and ongoing engagement and advocacy work.
