Lara Lauria is an illustrator based in South Wales. She is a mixed media artist who loves to illustrate digitally as well as traditionally with gouache and coloured pencils. She is primarily inspired by nature and animals in her work. In her illustration process she is drawn to bright colours and subtle textures digitally and traditionally. Currently, Lara is exploring the world at night by telling the stories of what adventures little creatures go on while the world is sleeping. Her favourite projects to work on are children’s picture books and illustrating poetry.
During her graduate portfolio her favourite pieces to work on were her final outcomes for her children’s picture book ‘Journey to The Night Mountain’ where she brought together her favourite digital and traditional techniques. Lara is really looking forward to developing her book and the story further, she has high hopes of publishing it one day!
